There is no economic justice without racial justice.

Workers are rising up to demand Black lives are valued.

In this moment of national reckoning, working people from across the nation and allies in the interconnected fights for justice joined together for the Strike for Black Lives. Join us in continuing to call for justice for Black communities, that elected officials use their authority to rewrite the rules so that Black people can thrive, that corporations dismantle racism, white supremacy and economic exploitation including at work, and that every worker has the opportunity to join a union.


SEIU stands in solidarity with the movement for Black lives and supports its demands for racial and economic justice. Below you will find more information on the actions we’re taking. Read our full resolution here.
