This weekend we showed the world how we #FightFor15 at our first-ever convention and march on Richmond.
We came from across the nation:
We came from every walk of life in America. From home care workers to fast-food cooks, child care workers to airport baggage handlers, university faculty and thousands more.
We marched on the capital of the old Confederacy, Richmond, Virginia.
We carried the names and photos of our Sisters and Brothers killed by police.
We spoke in one voice – to say that economic justice is inseparable from racial justice. To tackle poverty, we must tackle systemic racism. We are all in the same boat.
We stood together with Rev. Dr. William Barber II, who crystallized why we Fight for $15: “It took us 400 years to go from slavery to now, to get from $0 to $7.25. We can’t wait another 400 years.”
We marched over 8,000 strong to remind politicians that 64 million of us make less than $15 per hour and you can't take us for granted and win.
We will not be stopped – until we win freedom, justice and union rights. Until we win this #FightFor15.
Keep the march going. Share this image right now with your friends and family:
