In just a few short weeks, we will be marching with the #FightFor15 in Richmond, VA – and we need you with us.
This is truly an historic moment. Four years ago, a few dozen fast-food workers went on strike in New York City for $15 an hour and union rights.
Today, the movement that those strikers set in motion is 64 million strong. Workers have won $15 an hour in New York state and California, in Seattle and for cities and companies across the country – and we’ve helped change the conversation on economic and racial justice.
The choice of Richmond, the one-time heart of the Confederacy, will allow us to draw links between the way workers are treated today and the racist history of the United States -- and connect the Fight for 15 with the growing Black Lives Matter and immigrant justice movements.
That is why we are proud to be part of the #FightFor15. We are winning change that matters.
I want you to join us at the Richmond rally. Rev. Dr. William J Barber II of the Moral Monday/Forward Together Movement will lead the march. Free buses are leaving from around the state to join this historic march (see below for full list). Will you sign up right now to be there?
❑ YES! I want to join the #FightFor15 rally in Richmond, VA onAugust 13!
This fight is not just about dollars and cents – though we will not stop until every person who works hard makes enough to live.
It’s about justice. About economic justice. Racial justice. Immigration justice.
It’s about building a society where parents make enough money to feed their kids and send them to school. Where people do not need to worry about where their next meal is coming from, how they’ll pay their health care bills, or being racially profiled or discriminated against.
It’s about people coming together and making change. And that’s why we need you with us in Richmond at our rally on August 13. Sign up now.Stand with us.
Thanks for joining the fight.
In solidarity, forward together,
McDonald's worker and Fight for 15 leader
