Tribute to Essential Workers


On Sunday night, September 6th join the livestream for a Labor Day weekend tribute to honor the lives and work of essential workers.





Join us this Labor Day weekend to pay tribute to the lives and work of essential workers. On Sunday night, September 6th we’ll come together to watch performances, hear stories, and honor the lives of working people who continue to sacrifice daily for our nation’s safety and wellbeing.

Together we’ll issue a powerful call for transformation in honor of the people that we’ve lost and to fight for the working people who are essential to our economy and society. These essential workers are disproportionately Black and other women of color, immigrant, and other communities in the margins. We have a responsibility and opportunity to create an inclusive future that ensures that everyone is treated with dignity and respect–through raising pay and workplace standards, improving safety, and increasing worker power in the workplace.
