Strike with food workers on May Day!

The vital labor of our 21.5 million food workers feeds communities across this country, yet food workers are some of the lowest paid in the nation. At HEAL, we hold workers, and particularly the many Black and Brown migrant and immigrant workers across the food system who sustain our lands and lives, as leaders in our work for justice and transformation. As the current administration’s xenophobic policies and rhetoric attempt to divide and conquer our communities, we are committed to strengthening our ability to care for and fight for one another.

This year, the HEAL Food Alliance joins the Food Chain Workers Alliance, the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Beyond the Moment, and several West Coast unions in calling for a general strike on May 1st (International Workers Day).

We strike together for a world where the most marginalized working families live with dignity, safety, and power. We strike because we do not accept exclusion based on religion, race, gender identity, class, or immigration status. This May Day please stand up for workers and their families, by working for no one, buying nothing, and representing the people across this country who feed you every day.
