INVITE STRIKERS TO SHARE OUR STORY WITH YOUR ORGANIZATION, CHURCH,
OR COMMUNITY GROUPS
We can’t win this strike without the community’s support. Strikers can come speak about the details of this struggle with you or to your entire organization. Not only does this help educate members of your group, it also provides strikers with a chance to share their personal stories.
DONATE WATER OR SNACKS FOR THE PICKET LINE OR FOOD ITEMS
TO THE STRIKERS’ PANTRY
Nonperishable staples like rice, pasta, cereals and canned goods will be distributed to strikers so they can feed their families during this difficult struggle. Call 1199’s office to arrange a drop-off time to deliver your donation.
