It’s International Workers’ WEEK For #TeamTeresa!

Every year, on May 1st, workers around the world celebrate International Workers’ Day, commemorating those who stood up to demand their rights in Chicago’s Haymarket Square in 1886. In the face of violence against those seeking to collectively bargain for common-sense safety measures and a fair wage, workers stood up and continued to take action.

Here in Seattle, workers have stood up and formed unions, day-labor organizations and demanded change.  We’ve led on labor standards that have been replicated across the country – from Paid Sick and Safe Time, to the $15 Minimum Wage to creating a groundbreaking Office of Labor Standards.

Next week, in honor of International Workers’ Day, I am honoring my Labor roots, and continuing to bring the Labor Movement to City Hall for #LaborWeek! My office is hosting some community events and joining others organized by our community to celebrate, build upon, and uplift the Labor movement’s achievements, and I hope that you’ll join me!

Check out these events, and mark your calendar!

Monday April 30th

@Washington State Labor Council (321 16th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144) (6:30PM-8:30PM)

Join Councilmember Mosqueda for an evening of visioning and community building. The event will be focusing on what a just world for workers truly looks like. This means envisioning an ideal world where workers are respected, have all their needs met, and can thrive. We want to vision around what that would look like and what we need to do to accomplish it. We will also have video participation from national worker organizations talking about their work and their vision!

Thursday May 3rd

@Centilia Cultural Center (1660 S Roberto Maestas Festival St, Seattle, WA 98144)
(6:30PM-8:30PM)

Didn’t get a chance to watch Dolores yet? Join Councilmember Mosqueda for a FREE community screening of Dolores in celebration of International Workers Day and #LaborWeek! We will have fun activities and amazing food vendors. Bring your kiddos and celebrate all that we have accomplished in the Labor movement!

Saturday May 5th

@Greenwood Library, Main Meeting Room, 8016 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103 (10AM)

Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda will continue the listening series to hear what you would like to see as part of the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights. Our goal is to ensure that the people who take care of our kiddos as nannies, care for our elders as long-term care providers, and care for our homes as housekeepers, are extended the same common-sense labor protections that most other workers in Seattle have, and that employers can have their needs met as well.

In Solidarity,

TAKE ACTION: Here are some of the most pressing fights


Earthjustice

Dear Friends—

President Trump came to power on radical promises to attack environmental protections. But in his first 15 months, Earthjustice has won seven major victories against his administration, upholding everything from limits on the amount of methane that gas operators can pump into their neighbors’ air to lifesaving protections from the most dangerous chemicals on the market.Earthjustice and our team of more than 150 lawyers are locked in more than 85 legal battles to protect clean air, clean water, public lands and endangered wildlife from the Trump administration’s environmental actions, with many more in the works.

But we can’t win these alone your voice is a major part of our strategy. Just last week, 40,858 Earthjustice supporters filled federal books with comments against rolling back our only national climate policy. The record will never show that these attacks on our environment and communities went on unopposed. We need to keep fighting back. Here are some of the most pressing fights in which we need your voice to speak up with ours:

Coal ash waste. (Nenad Zivkovic/Shutterstock)
Don’t let dirty industry pollute our waters and communities with toxic coal ash
Hundreds of coal power plants burn close to a billion tons of coal every year, and the toxic byproduct—coal ash—that ends up in our air and water supply has been linked to cancer, heart disease, stroke and brain damage.
TAKE ACTION
Scott Pruitt is not fit to lead the EPA. (Chris Jordon-Bloch)
Scott Pruitt is unfit to lead the EPA
By recklessly rolling back critical health protections, refusing to ban dangerous pesticides proven to put children at risk, and trying to gut protections from toxic coal ash, Pruitt is undermining the mission of the EPA.
TAKE ACTION
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (Hillebrand/USFWS)
Defend the Arctic Refuge from oil drilling
In late April, the Trump administration began a process that would put the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge on the auction block for oil and gas leasing, opening the door for the fossil fuel industry to turn this iconic wilderness into an oilfield.
TAKE ACTION
Valero Refinery fire, Benicia California (CalEPA)
Protect communities from chemical disasters
Tell the EPA to stop putting people in harm’s way. We need protections from chemical disasters now, before more people die because of the agency’s failure to follow the Clean Air Act and to fulfill its mission to protect public health and safety.
TAKE ACTION

Stay involved and be the first to get Earthjustice news and the first to fight back against attacks on our environment. Text EARTHJUSTICE to 52886 to join our text list.
