Naomi Heisler’s COVID-19 Organizing Fundraiser for Brandworkers
Back food factory workers organizing for survival and long term power
Specialty food manufacturing workers are risking their lives to keep food in supply during the coronavirus pandemic. Workers need your solidarity to protect themselves now and to build power that lasts long after the crisis.
I am raising funds because this crisis has served as a reminder of how much we depend on our food workers. However, instead of treating workers with the respect and dignity they deserve, and compensating them fairly, the response has been pretty empty—calling folks “heroes” without ensuring that they have access to the PPE and compensation that they deserve. Both during and after this crisis, we need to ensure that food factory workers are valued!
Your gift funds worker-led organizing for safety and income support during the coronavirus crisis. Together, we will protect food workers on the frontlines while building power that endures for years to come.
Our gifts will help Brandworkers gather funds from 500 community members by May 1st. Visit Brandworkers.org/MayDay to see our progress and sign up to help.
