Labor & Hip Hop Unite to Say, "Respect My Vote!"
This November 2nd, young people, workers, and communities of color have the power to help define the direction of our nation with their votes. The Hip Hop Caucus and American Rights at Work have teamed up for a video and photo campaign targeted at young voters: Respect My Vote!
The video features women of color in the labor movement talking about why it is so important for young people to vote and get involved in making progressive change. Sarita Gupta, Executive Director of Jobs with Justice, said, "the face of workers is changing. The notion of work is changing. We need young people to be engaged in helping define what the new standards are out there and what we need to be fighting for."
Also featured in the video are Jobs with Justice National Board members Esther Lopez of the UFCW and Ana Avendano of the AFL-CIO.
