Tech companies have a responsibility to all of their service workers. Continued compensation is the minimum during a pandemic. Companies who continue to lay off and lower wages need to prioritize all of their employees, not just some.

As we move into the last month of the year, we are proud of how we have come together as voters this past month to create a shift in values nationwide. It's #OurTimeNow to keep elected officials accountable and move forward together.
No matter where we come from, what our color, or what we do for a living, most of us work hard for our families. But today, certain politicians and corporations continue to prioritize profit and exploit the workers that keep them alive, even in a pandemic.

Today, we need to join together in union to demand that people who work for a living can earn a good living, just like we won safer workplaces and civil rights in our past. By joining together, we make a future where we all get a fair return on our work.
It's more important than ever that we commit to shopping local on
#BlackFriday and #CyberMonday and invest in small businesses — not

Today and everyday, we honor above all else the Indigenous peoples who have for generations, and continue to, steward this land. We exist on unceded territory, with Indigenous peoples from various tribes living all around us.

Consistent acknowledgement, reparations, and the fight for land back must continue in order to reckon with the history of settler-colonialism.
Don't shop on Amazon this #BlackFriday or #CyberMonday #BlackOutBezos and demand Jeff Bezos treat his workers better, or lose our money!

Stop Jeff Bezos from exploiting California workers.
