Colorado Jobs with Justice is a long-term, formal coalition of labor, community, faith, and student and youth organizations that come together to advance workers' rights and social justice through building sustained relationships and taking direct action to create concrete change in the lives of working families. We are one of the oldest of the more than forty local, autonomous chapters of the Jobs with Justice network, which has a twenty-five year history of fighting for working families and their communities.

Across the network, Jobs with Justice works on a range of issues from labor law reform to healthcare, from organizing campaigns to immigrant rights. In Colorado, we focus on those places where other social justice issues overlap with economic justice and racial justice.

In this workshop we explore the history and roots of worker struggle, the complexities of the labor movement and the intersections of diverse identities, and what building a community vision of worker power might look like with a lens of racial and economic justice. The workshop is intended to build a grassroots movement for labor justice, support inter-sectional organizations and groups in Denver and animate people to participate in direct action for worker rights.

Demand the public policies and corporate practices that allow our families and communities to prosper. During the next year, I'LL BE THERE at least five times a year for someone else's fight, as well as my own. If enough of us are there, we'll all start winning. That means joining picket lines, attending contract rallies and participating in other actions or demonstrations for economic and racial justice.
