Why this petition matters

It's time! It's been time to take action and make a real difference! Sign the Petition today! 

Black workers, no matter if we are domestic workers, restaurant workers, health care providers, lawyers, or construction workers, we face a shared problem: significantly more instances of workplace discrimination, higher unemployment rates, lower wages, unsafe and unhealthy work conditions, benefits gaps, and much fewer savings to fall back on. 

This can no longer be our reality! We need your help to demand a Black Worker Bill of Rights. Black workers, regardless of gender, education, experience, or job type deserve an economy that works for us. An Economy that Works for Everyone! Because when you lift up Black workers, you lift up all workers.

The Black Worker Bill of Rights is a demand to end anti-Black racism and discrimination in the workplace. It is a demand to end to low wages that do not allow us to take care of ourselves and our families. It is a demand for transformative policies and practices that build worker power along with control over policy decisions that impact our lives.  

Black workers work hard and deserve equity in the workplace. Our families depend on it. Support the Black Worker Bill of Rights! Join us in standing up for the rights and labor of more than 20 million Black workers across the country. You can join us by adding your voice to this important movement! Sign the petition - the time for action is now!

We have to do this together! Together, we can make a real difference and lift up all workers in the process.
