New York: Irish Stand

March 17, 2017 at The Riverside Church in the City of New York in New York.


“Yes, we must stand and we must speak,” Martin Luther King, Jr., The Riverside Church, 1967

We invite you to join us in an Irish Stand, a call for inclusivity, diversity, and human rights for our global citizenry. Irish Stand has been organized to coincide with Ireland’s National Holiday, St. Patrick’s Day. The story of the Irish, both home and abroad, is one of immigration, sectarianism, and oppression. We understand and echo the concerns of those communities who face fear and uncertainty. We are, therefore, compelled to raise our voices in the spirit of the late and great, Dr. King, and make a compassionate stand for unity. Irish Stand will be an evening of multi-cultural prose, speech, song and wit. The evening’s guests include campaigner Shaun King, author Colum McCann, comedian Maeve Higgins, playwright Lisa-Tierney Keogh, actor Richard Schiff, and Irish Senator Aodhán Ó Ríordáin. An updated list of speakers and performers will be posted over the coming weeks.

Let us remind this new administration, many of whom are Irish-American descendants of immigrants themselves, that the international community rejects the politics of division and fear. By working together, we can lead by example and make a difference in America and across the world.

New York: Trump v. Press Freedom

March 10, 2017 at UAW Region 9A – NYC in New York.


On Feb. 24, CNN, Politico, BuzzFeed, HuffPost and the New York Times were banned from the West Wing press briefing at the White House! Current attacks on U.S. media workers bear a striking resemblence to those in Turkey and other countries. We are now in the world of “alternative facts,” and the President of the United states has declared the press “the enemy of the people.”
Join the National Writers Union and the Writers Guild of America East for a live-streamed panel on Trump v. Press Freedom.
Our panelists will be Bill Fletcher, Jr. (The Nation, Black Communicator), Trudy Lieberman (Columbia Journalism Review) and Liza Featherstone (The Nation).
The attacks on the press did not start with the six journalists arrested on Inauguration Day. Amy Goodman of Democracy Now, and many other reporters were arrested, threatened, and assaulted while covering the North Dakota Pipeline Access protests, as well as marches against police killings in New York and Ferguson. The Obama Administration prosecuted nine cases under the Espionage Act, more than all previous administrations combined, in an attempt to silence whistle blowers like Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning. Now, Trump and Bannon are rushing through that opened door.
Please RSVP to nwu@nwu.org. Space is limited.

New York: We Won’t Back Down: Fightfor15 National Day of Disruption NYC

November 29, 2016 at Zuccotti Park in New York.


The fight for justice for ALL workers goes beyond one elected official or election day.

We’re ready to take to the streets, raise our voices, hold corporations accountable, and say WE WONT BACK DOWN!

We reject attempts to tear America apart by race, ethnicity, and gender. We will fight against any efforts to block wage increases, gut worker’s rights, deport immigrants, or cut our health care.

Over the last four years, the Fight for $15 has inspired workers to come together and change the politics of this country around wages. We’ve won raises for 22 million Americans, including 10 million who are on a path to $15, but we can’t stop and we won’t stop fighting until all of us win $15/hr and has union rights.

Address: Broadway & Liberty Street, New York
We Won
