Wellesley, MA | May 1st Strike at Wellesley

May 1 @ 8:00 am

On May 1st, Raíz is urging the Wellesley community to join the nationwide “A Day Without Immigrants” strike. We will not go to school, we will not go to work, and we will not buy.

By striking, we will join Movimiento Cosecha, Fight For $15, Food Chain Workers Alliance, SEIU United Workers West, and other unions and movements as they unite to make it clear that this country cannot function without immigrants. They build confidence that through non-cooperation, we can force this country to recognize immigrants and realize that it depends on them.

In addition, on May 1st, Raíz is planning to march from Wellesley College to the town of Wellesley. In the town, we will hold a rally in support of immigrants. We are currently working on getting other nearby colleges to join us. More information about this to come!

Leverage your privilege as students and join the fight! Commit to strike! Hasta la huelga!
