Tens of millions of people have been laid off or have lost income due to the COVID-19 crisis. U.S. jobless claims passed 40 million in May. Even with the economy reopening, millions remain jobless.

It doesn’t have to be this way! Inflicting joblessness is a political choice.

Join us for an online press conference on July 2nd, on the day the US Bureau of Labor Statistics will release the latest unemployment numbers. We will hear from our members who are struggling with unemployment, and learn how to fight back and demand a Green New Deal that can tackle the climate crisis while creating millions of good-paying green union jobs for the working class and the communities that need it most.

After you RSVP, we will follow up directly with a zoom link so you can join digitally.
