Resist and Persist Campaign
To support the Greater Minnesota Workers Center's "Resist and Persist" campaign that responds to the Trump administration's policies by supporting workers, promoting sanctuary, and advancing progressive legislation.
Overall, the goal of the R & P campaign is to advance social justice by welcoming refugees (not banning or deporting them), and protecting undocumented immigrants and other vulnerable populations from deportations. GMWC believes that we should not jeopardize the safety and security of people who have fled their homeland and have sought sanctuary in our shores due to a well-founded fear of persecution based on ethnicity, race, religion and other factors. We also believe that with unions under attack from the current administration’s anti-labor policy direction, these populations in Greater Minnesota benefit from having access to the resources of a worker center that can train them on how to organize in industries that are heavily non-unionized.
