Pass the PRO Act Town Hall 2021-04-27
Tue, April 27, 2021 at 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
DSA’s highest national priority is to pass the PRO Act (Protect the Right to Organize), which 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. A strong, militant organized labor movement was essential in obtaining the New Deal and will be equally as important in making the Green New Deal a reality.
When DSA began the campaign to pass the PRO Act, five Democratic senators had yet to signal their support. Since then, we have made over 500,000 calls and got two senators to announce their support. Our people power already has made an impact. The law only codifies our power – our organized movement is its ultimate source!
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. Register here!
