Green Light NY: Driving Together
Fue un día de resistencia, un día de recordar a nuestros antepasados, a los compañeros caídos, a las victimas de la violencia policiaca y de estar en solidaridad con los compañeros de #Buffalo25. Gracias a todos los que nos acompañaron, a los compañeros y compañeras miembros del Centro. Que bonita noche de recordar a los muertos y luchar por los vivos!
It was a great day of resistance, a day to remember our ancestors, fallen workers and the victims of police violence. We invited the community to be in solidarity with the #Buffalo25. Thanks to all of you who joined us and to our WCCNY members who participated. What a beautiful night to remember the dead and fight for the living.
Join us at our Day of the Dead Fundraiser Wednesday Nov 2nd at 6pm!
From Movimiento Cosecha:
This last week, ICE raided 4 Mexican restaurants in Buffalo, NY and detained 25 undocumented workers. ICE separated their family, ransacked their homes, and stole their savings. They are in need of support for rent, food, and legal fees.
Esta última semana, ICE allano 4 restaurantes de comida mexicana en Buffalo, Nueva York y detuvo a 25 trabajadores indocumentados. ICE saqueó las casas de estas familias, robó sus ahorros, y estan creando terror entre la comunidad. Estas son 25 familias cuyas vidas han desgarradas y ahora están separadas.
Por favor apoyan el #Buffalo25 y su familias en este momento de crisis:bit.ly/buffalo25fund
We want to thank everyone for coming out to see Teatro de los Trabajadores, the newly formed Workers’ Center of CNY theater troupe, debut “Raining Rocks” along with the our compañeros from the Building Company Theater. All of the actors and the actresses in the play did an amazing job and we are extremely proud. We are very happy to continue building our repertory based on workers stories and our campaigns.
After the debut of the play we continued to use theater during a Health and Safety training where we talked about how we can fight health and safety violations in our workplaces. Thanks to everyone for participating!
Do injustice and exploitation get you angry? Don’t you wish you had more power at your workplace or in your community? Do you believe society could be more just?Do you believe that there is strength in numbers? If you answered yes to any of these questions come join us this Thursday, Sept. 22nd! This Thursday the Workers’ Center of CNY will be holding an orientation and a Health and Safety training at 6 pm. The first part of the workshop will be an introduction to the Workers’ Center. Members will share information about the various campaigns we are working on and also talking about what it means to be a member of the organization. The second part of the workshop will be a workers’ rights training on health and safety in the workplace. We will be doing fun, interactive activities that get us thinking about how work im pacts our bodies and our overall health and what we can do about it. We will be raffling some great gifts and there will be FOOD! (Yum, yum!)
