|Sept 5 – Oct 31 – Southern Workers Power Program Webinar Series|
|The Southern Workers Assembly is excited to invite you to join an upcoming webinar series led by Communiversity, an educational partner of Black Workers for Justice, that will explore and discuss the nine points of the Southern Workers Power Program. The series begins on Monday, September 5, at 7pm eastern and will continue every following Monday. Register to participate here|
This series of nine webinars will explore SWA’s Worker’s Power Program, centering the role and demands of workers as we speed toward the 2022 election cycle.
The primary objective of this series of programs is to explore SWA’s Worker’s Power Program as a viable platform for workers in the South to collectively build and consolidate worker’s power. As well as learn more about current and key sites of organizing across the South.
We will explore actions taken and their results; the historical context and connection of workers struggle to the Black liberation movement; ways to build strong political education on the key issues outlined in the nine-point program; and how it can aid in organizing and building a movement of workers to wage struggle against the accelerated destructive forces of capitalism.
We invite you to join us every Monday from September 5 to October 31, 7pm – 8pm EST. Please note your registration will automatically register you for all nine webinars.
We look forward to connecting and engaging with each of you to build worker power in the South!
Forward ever, backward never! Organize the South!
|Sept 8, 6pm et: Informational webinar on Day Without Us action|
|Southern Workers Assembly has endorsed an important day of action on September 30 to protest the lack of reproductive justice. The Workers Program developed by SWA includes a demand for control of our bodies and free access to reproductive health. SWA is encouraging people to participate in this day of action and will have additional information available in the coming days, including an informational webinar on Thursday, September 8 at 6pm et (register here). Below is what the organizers of the action say:To accomplish the #DayWithoutUs, we’re building an inclusive table developed by Black women-led reproductive justice organizations and organizers who|
understand that all of our movements are connected. The urgency to address
reproductive rights is directly related to protecting our overall freedoms. In this
intervention, framed by our shared lived experiences as Black people, we must
also reckon with the varied privileges that exist in being able to take the day off.
We will offer material support to those who would feel economic impact by
joining this day of action. We must remove as many barriers to participation as
possible to test and flex our collective physical and economic impact.
