Why Labor Has the Answer

Dallas activists gather at 5PM tonight, June 3, at 1408 N Washington to help organize union members to win key City Council races. Everybody is invited and no special training is required. Phones and laptops will help.

Recent political developments underline the importance of organizing working families. A speaker at the Q-ANON convention in downtown Dallas drew a burst of applause when he said that America should have a military overthrow similar to Myanmar. Texas Republicans tried to pass an anti-voter bill that had secretly been beefed-up to be even worse than the one that had been discussed. The Governor of Texas just endorsed the opponent of the labor-endorsed candidate for Fort Worth Mayor.


Fight for Voter Rights

One of the best ways to fight for voter rights is to vote! An update on our previous efforts for Dallas labor’s endorsed candidates is on our web site.  Saturday is the voters’ last chance.

The Pandemic Threatens

Dallas activists will be at the German Embassy, 17130 Dallas Parkway, at 6PM Sunday, June 6, to push for international accessto vaccines. The pandemic is hitting the richest countries less, but it is still raging in most of the world. None of us are safe until all of us are safe.

Texas Fair Trade spokesman Bob Cash says that the Biden Administration and 100-plus countries are standing with us for a coordinated global program, but Germany and politically powerful pharmaceutical companies are not. Please wear masks and respect social distancing.

Solidarity with Lockout Victims

North Texans can stand with the locked-out refinery workers from Beaumont by contacting Steelworker Organizer Lawrence Castillo. Cash donations can be made on-line. Checks go to USW LU 13-243 / Karla Konning, Treasurer / 2490 S. 11th Street / Beaumont, TX 77701. They are collecting materials for the families.
