WRFG Labor Forum Program for Monday, Jan 9, 2017

On Monday, Jan. 9, 2017, The Labor Forum on WRFG 89.3FM welcomes Traci Drummond to the studio to talk about the resources available at the Southern Labor Archives housed at Georgia State University. From photos to organizational documents to oral and video accounts of worker struggles, the Archives offer evidence of the decades-long resistance by organized communities in the Souith to low-wages, brutal working conditions,discrimination and exploitation. Traci will be sharing information about this wealth of material from 4:15 to 4:30pm.

At 4:30. APWU #404 President, William Flanagan will be in the studio to share the good news of the removal of US postal services from Staples stores.
This is a big victory against the attempts by the Postal management to outsource and privatize post offices by placing them in Staples stores, staffed with low-wage Staples employees.
We will discuss the multi-year campaign to beat back this anti-union move and its significance to the overall movement of workers for economic justice.
The Labor Forum airs every Monday on WRFG 89.3FM from 4-5pm. For additional information, please go the our website at http://www.wrfglaborforum.org

The People’s Inauguration; March & Rally on Jan 20

Friday, January 20 at 11 AM – 2 PM

Troy Davis Park (Woodruff Park)
51 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30303

The Georgia J20 Coalition is a solidarity-building partnership of local community grassroots organizations and networks, faith-based organizations, and labor unions. The Georgia J20 is led by impacted communities, who know that the growing climate of hatred, bigotry, Islamophobia, and xenophobia has poisoned our political process and deranged our society’s moral compass.

As our nation transitions power to an alt-right, corporatist, and exclusive form of leadership, we seek to lift up the concerns of our communities and our neighbors. We affirm the resilience and self-determination of our people who are the most directly impacted by forces of oppression. We will continue to center our voices and amplify our initiatives. We will organize, strategize, and build unity in our defense and will continue to follow the guidance and leadership of our communities. We seek to create and defend a sanctuary space that commit resources and support our communities members to fight and continue to defend from a system rooted in income inequality, white supremacy, racism, and misogyny. We realize that in unity and solidarity there is strength.

On January 20th at 10:00 am, our coalition will engage in the People’s Inauguration where our communities will demand for the city of Atlanta to uphold its obligation and commitment of being a Welcoming City to it’s diversity of residents, visitors and businesses.

We the People demand that the City of Atlanta truly welcome people of all nations, and respect the human rights of all in our communities;

We are grounded in the liberation and safety of our communities. Please come with respect. This is a family and community event. Wear comfortable shoes, use MARTA and join us!

The Georgia J20 Coalition is a solidarity-building partnership of local community grassroots organizations and networks, faith-based organizations, and labor unions. For more information call 7704575232
