Sebastian Bouknight’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 $300 because even before this pandemic, food factory workers were experiencing a drawn-out crisis—working to keep New York fed without being afforded basic rights and protections. Coronavirus has made life even more precarious, leaving workers suddenly without work, or putting their lives on the line while they work without adequate protective gear or hazard pay. Now’s the time to go all in and build the power to sustain lives through this crisis and beyond.

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 to see our progress and sign up to help.
