Friend — 

Happy Pride! We'll be tabling at PHL Pride 50 this Sunday, which takes place on the 50th anniversary of Philly's first ever Gay Pride Day in 1972. 

As socialists, we know there is no liberation without the freedom of LGBTQIA+ people, and we look forward to honoring the contributions of Queer and Trans People of Color in this fight. 

If you'd like to join us at Pride, please contact Adam at [email protected].

This week in unions

  • Yesterday, our chapter stood with New Jersey Amazon workers who walked out of work! We’re proud to stand with Amazon workers and will always stand with working people – especially when they go up against the richest man in the world. More here!
  • Today, we supported Teamsters at Penn who are fighting for a fair contract! These workers will be out weekly until they get a fair contract, so stay tuned for more ways to support.

To get involved: If you’re interested in supporting workers who want to organize, organizing your workplace, supporting workers and unions taking collective action, or in building relationships with rank and file union members and leaders, email philly[email protected].
