AT&T workers solidarity

Jobs with Justice of East Tennessee June 3 2019.


Thank You for standing in solidarity today with AT&T workers who face the expiration of their Southeast contract August 3. We asked customers, "We're trying to keep good jobs in our communities, and AT&T's CEO is trying to offshore them, even though they got a tax cut. Will you help us call on Congress to investigate them?" You can, too! Go to today or tomorrow and write to your Congressperson.

With Travis Donoho, David Alex Hayes, Elizabeth Armstrong, Mike Armstrong, Lee Dunham Sessions, Richard Henighan, Cassie Watters, Amelia Parker.

Working for Bernie

Members of the Democratic Socialists of America organizing committee in Knoxville are working as individuals with local progressive groups to get Sanders on the ballot for the presidential primary.

These petitions are a great organizing tool, and as a result local members are having weekly conversations with people about socialism.

Travis Donoho, of the Knoxville committee, joined the New American Movement when he was just 18 years old, and became a member of DSA when it merged with the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee in 1982. Travis says that now is the time to recruit people to DSA.

He told me: “There's never been a better time to ask people to join DSA. Bernie is making it okay to talk about democratic socialism. And we haven't seen that in 40 years.”[4]
