Author: Labor for Black Lives

Labor for Black Lives aims to leverage the disruptive power of workers in unwavering solidarity with the Movement for Black Lives. We come from organized and not-yet-organized workplaces, from service and industrial sectors; from security and fugitivity. Our demands are not negotiable, and we will fight until they are met. We have nothing to lose but our chains.

Solidarity Statement with September 9, 2016, Prison Strike



Labor for Black Lives – a multi-ethnic network of workers in solidarity with the movement for Black lives, against capitalist exploitation and racist injustice and all oppression – fully endorses the Prison Strike, to begin on September 9, 2016, in which prisoners across the United States are organizing to end prison slavery and mass incarceration. We join our voices and forces with those, including 800+ prisoner members of the IWW's Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC), who say THIS STOPS TODAY.
