An injury to one is an injury to all. As workers, we need each other. We need to stand together and, when necessary, we need to fight together. We have strength when we are together. When we mobilize, we not only show our strength but energize our movement and our allies.
The Mobilizing Committee of the Martin Luther King Jr. County Labor Council is a tool to help us regain our ability to unite workers when any of us is in need. We need to show our strength to protect workers, to build on existing successes and to strengthen our movement going forward.
Mobilization doesn’t happen spontaneously. We need to be committed to being there for others, and we need a way to reach out to communicate with that each other. Without organization, that won’t happen.
This committee will help us to regain the capacity that we as a labor movement used to have. When labor or our allies need mobilization, we will be there to stand, march, speak out, or whatever is necessary.
We need to support our brothers and sisters when there is a strike or other action. We need to stand with the unorganized when they need our help. We need to participate in larger efforts to ensure that when social justice is at stake, labor is in the house.
Labor has always been a voice in progressive actions, but we have become less visible. As we increase our ability to mobilize, becoming more visible, we will not only strengthen the movement for social justice, but also ensure that workers’ voices are always heard.
