DSA wants to get the PRO (Protect the Right to Organize) Act passed, and we need your help!

The PRO Act is the most comprehensive update to labor law since the passage of the National Labor Relations Act nearly a century ago. The PRO Act closes the contractor loophole created by Prop 22, ends right-to-work laws across the country, and makes it easier to organize unions and get to a first contract. An organized labor movement was essential in obtaining the New Deal and will be equally as important in making the Green New Deal a reality.

Silicon Valley DSA has teamed up with East Bay DSA, DSA SF, and Peninsula DSA to host a Bay Area PRO Act Town Hall. We’ll hear from worker organizers that are part of active campaigns, including SEIU 1021, ILWU Local 6, and the Alphabet Workers Union, followed by a moderated panel discussion with Jovanka Beckles, James Tracy, and Andres Soto.

Learn about the PRO Act, the importance of organized labor, and how to get involved in the ongoing campaign. Be PRO-Active and join our town hall tomorrow, Tuesday, April 27th at 7pm.
