Upcoming actions


May 1: A Day Without Immigrants

Movimiento Cosecha, or Harvest Movement, plans to go on the offensive under the Trump administration by organizing a week-long migrant strike of five to eight million workers. Led by undocumented people and immigrants, including veteran Dreamers, Cosecha will build toward this larger goal with a one-day strike on May 1, also known as May Day or International Workers’ Day.

March 8: International Strike Against Male Violence and in Defense of Reproductive Rights

[A] coalition is calling for an “international strike against male violence and in defense of reproductive rights” on March 8. They write, “The idea is to mobilize women, including trans women, and all who support them in an international day of struggle—a day of striking, marching, blocking roads, bridges, and squares, abstaining from domestic, care and sex work, boycotting, calling out misogynistic politicians and companies, striking in educational institutions.”
Feb 17

Yet another political formation is calling for a strike on February 17, coalescing around the demand that senators and congressional representatives “Actively oppose any governmental language or action that violates any tenet of our Constitution.”
