We started the Solidarity Squad as an action team to give people a way to fight back against the federal government officials and corporations newly emboldened to attack our communities. Many of our partner organizations and their members are facing assaults on their rights, and we envision the Squad as a solidarity team that can stand with them.
The fight for justice always begins at home. And we believe that organized, tight-knit groups fuel movements and win campaigns. So join your neighbors who are ready to fight back and be part of the Solidarity Squad. We will ask Solidarity Squad members to commit to:
- Taking concrete action with workers and communities facing attacks.
- Attending a training on immigrant and worker rights, then participating in “Know Your Rights” outreach to share these rights with impacted communities and allies.
- Attending demonstrations to stand with workers whose rights have been violated or who are already leading in fights for workplace justice.
- Holding DC government accountable for supporting communities and workers.
