Launch party and fundraiser for the collaborative campaign between NDLON and Suay Sew Shop in support of skilled labor.

About this Event

Announcing the launch of a critical movement between SUAY SEW SHOP + the NATIONAL DAY LABORER ORGANIZING NETWORK.

Rights, Respect, Raises.

Let’s permanently shift the way the world respects laborers. On Saturday, November 5th, we are asking you to join in the collaborative campaign between NDLON and Suay Sew Shop, because only the people will save the people.

Fields. Factories. Kitchens. Roads. Homes.

The entire infrastructure of our lives thrives on Manual Skilled Labor, of predominantly Black, Brown, Indigenous and Asian communities. How is is that the hardest working are the most vulnerable? Wage theft, intimidation, safety concerns, under-compensation, COVID19, and disrespect. This stops now. Join us on Saturday (and every day thereafter) as we celebrate, champion, and protect the integral, skilled, and, yes, essential labor that legit keeps us all alive and thriving..

At this launch party, in the streets, and online, we’ll see you there.

Show up for the respect and recognition of MANUAL SKILLED LABOR.

NDLON’s Mission

NDLON improves the lives of day laborers, migrants, and low-wage workers by building leadership and power among those facing injustice so they can challenge inequality and expand labor, civil and political rights for all. We work to provide safe spaces for both workers and employers to find work, defending them against wage theft, retaliation, and exploitation on the job, and we empower day laborers and immigrants to take leadership in their communities and defend themselves against unscrupulous employers, anti-immigrant policies, deportation, and ICE raids. Our work advances political equality. It creates change from the bottom up because when you empower the most vulnerable and build policies to protect them, we know that all members of society benefit as well.
