Walmart: Stop Retaliation, Do Right in Our Neighborhoods!

Walmart has fired or disciplined 60 workers who’ve exercised their legally-protected right to speak up for better treatment. Walmart workers and allies have spent a month asking Walmart to reinstate fired workers and reverse disciplinary action, with no response. 

At the same time, Walmart is trying to enter Los Angeles with little regard for its neighbors, for the communities it’s affecting, or for the workers it will be employing. Workers – and Angelenos – deserve better.

 

We’ll be praying with our feet downtown on Thursday, September 5, at 11am in Pershing Square. We’ll be marching to the Chinatown Walmart location at Cesar E. Chavez and Grand and calling on Walmart to do right buy the 60 workers who’ve been fired and disciplined. 

We need your wisdom, your liturgical traditions, and your faith tradition’s insight to truly bear witness to our shared commitment to worker justice. Please also contact Pastor Bridie Roberts if you are interested in opportunities to nonviolently pursue a deeper commitment to this issue.ImageImage
