Solidarity & Support Alabama Amazon Union
ICE Out of NJ Speak Out!
TRENTON, NJ – We had great support for last month's solidarity event. Tomorrow we will be hosting two events with our YES-Young Eco-Socialists Caucus. First, in solidarity with Alabama Amazon Workers and then only two miles away ICE Out of NJ Speak Out! We as a party have signed onto and support the March 2o "International's Day of Solidarity With Alabama Amazon Workers & Against Union Busting on World Day Against Racism."
Our event is from 12:15 - 1:15 p.m., with our YES Caucus. This event will be outside the Amazon Warehouse/Fufillment Center located at 698 US-46 in Teterboro, NJ. We invite you to attend! So please bundle up, wear a mask, bring hand sanitizer and rallying signs, remain socially distant and park in the Teterboro Landing Shopping Center across the street.
ICE Out of NJ Speak Out!
Afterwards, we will head over to the Bergen County ICE Detention Facility and join with PSL New Jersey and others still standing up against the injustices at this facility.
Join us on March 20, 2021 from 1:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. for a rally and virtual action in opposition to continued immigrant detention in New Jersey.
Our in-person event will be designed as an interactive, community-focused event, including speakers, musical entertainment, leafletting, and other opportunities to engage with members of the Hackensack community.
Virtually, we will livestream the in person action (and associated speeches and performances) over Facebook Live, and our moderators will help lead phone zaps to encourage local elected officials in Bergen County to cut the contracts with ICE.
Special Conversation "NJ Needs Electoral Reform: Is Rank Choice Voting the Answer?" and GPNJ March State Monthly Meeting

You will need to register to attend and be able to ask questions afterwards.
