Statement from SEIU President Mary Kay Henry on Poor People's Campaign's season of action

“Millions of working people delivered a message at the ballot box last year: we need a new normal, so families no longer struggle to make ends meet every day because corporations and self-interested politicians treat workers as sacrificial, not essential. Our elected leaders have the moral responsibility to ensure we all have the chance to win a better future, by passing $15/hr and protecting democracy with the passage of the For the People Act.  SEIU is proud to stand with the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival during the Season of Prayer & Protest to Save Our Democracy. Together we will fight against the reckless disregard for life and make sure all of us, no matter our race or where we come from, have the health, safety and security we deserve.”
