Thanks again to everyone that joined us for our Human Rights Dialogue on January 19. We had a great turnout and excellent discussion. The overarching themes of the event were Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Poor People’s Campaign and learning to connect our struggles. The video below, which is footage an activity we performed at the dialogue, exemplifies this point.

In recognition of our historic human rights victory, Labor Notes presented the United Workers with a Troublemaker Award. Just weeks before, cleaners at Camden Yards returned to work at a living wage for the first time in the stadium's history. And whoever said that making trouble is its own reward? Of course, we've been making trouble for some time. Five years ago, cleaners were paid less than the minimum wage - $4 an hour.
