This meeting will be relatively informal. New people are very welcome! We will gather at the large table in the middle of the coffee shop, inside on the first floor. Look for our signs on the table.
“This strike has gone national. We are looking as strong as ever!…We thank those who are out there and those in the community and across the state who are supporting us, walking with us, and donating to our strike fund. There is more support than we could have even imagined.” stated Local 833 leadership November 29.

YGB is an all-volunteer organization that relies upon support of the people. We couldn’t do the work we do – or have this impact – without the support of so many in our local and national community. Please continue to support the Young Gifted and Black Coalition as we stand against oppression and stand for liberation for all oppressed people.
From the occupation in Minneapolis, where peaceful protesters have been shot at by white supremacists and maced by the police, all in the wake of the killing of Jamar Clark – To the protests in Chicago after the indictment of Officer Van Dyke and the video from the dash cam being released that shows him shooting Laquan McDonald 16 times.
Milwaukee stands in solidarity. Please keep following updates via Facebook and Twitter (@Justice4Dontre) and continue to talk about it and repost it and share it. We will not be silenced.
“…I’m so proud of you young People out there too, all over the country, standing up for our Nations and taking over because some of us can no longer get out there to stand by your sides—or to stand there with you and shake your hands.
February 6, 2016, will make it 40 straight years in here. Under the laws I was indicted with, a life term was seven years. I have served over six life sentences! As you know, I was sentenced to only two. To Native Peoples this is also not surprising. In fact, this is something that happens on a regular basis throughout Indian Country. And, as always, this is not acceptable to us. So we protest, and we protest some more…”
We envision a future in which our company treats us, the Associates of Walmart, with respect and dignity. We envision a world where we succeed in our careers, our company succeeds in business, our customers receive great service and value, and Walmart and Associates share all of these goals.
OUR Walmart works to ensure that every Associate, regardless of his or her title, age, race, or sex, is respected at Walmart. We join together to offer strength and support in addressing the challenges that arise in our stores and our company everyday.
