On Wednesday, June 17, working people from the greater Milwaukee Area will join thousands of people from across the country in a Workers First Caravan for Racial and Economic Justice, a massive national day of action calling for bold policies to confront the three crises facing America: a public health pandemic, an economic free fall and long-standing structural racism.
The AFL-CIO has put forth Five Essentials to safely reopen the American economy that must be passed and implemented in ways that recognize the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on workers of color.
We Thank You Wednesday- Standing for Racial and Economic Justice
Wednesday, June 17th
Washington High School- 2525 N. Sherman Blvd. Milwaukee
On June 17th, we will highlight the work being done by the men and women of Milwaukee Public Schools from AFSCME Wisconsin Council 32 Local 1053, IUOE Local 420, and the Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association.
These teachers, secretaries, support staff, engineers, custodians, and more care for the students of Milwaukee throughout the year. During COVID-19, the heart and soul of our public schools have continued to ensure that students receive virtual lessons, access to meals, and that their voices are lifted up during protests across the City.
We will also honor the memory of Ralph Davis, a paraprofessional and coach at Washington High School who died of COVID-19 earlier this year.
We take the health and safety of our members seriously. For that reason, we require all those who join in We Thank You Wednesday’s show of support to wear masks and maintain social distancing rules of staying at least 6 feet apart during our rally.
