Happy Labor Day from your Illuminating Friends!

This Labor Day we here at Illuminator Central consider the long view, the slow and steady fight for a more just and sustainable world for the 99%. It wasn’t so long ago that the idea of “workers rights” was considered revolutionary. Today, it is accepted that workers do, and should, have rights, and yet…..some employers need to be reminded. 

We’ve been doing some of that reminding with The Illuminator over the last 6 months. Whether at the Con-Ed building in early August, or the Hot and Crusty just a few days ago, or in the Financial District on Mayday, we’ve been shining light on the struggles of workers everywhere, as well as many other vital and connected struggles. 

We’d like to continue to do this work after we lose access to this van, and you can help ensure that this is possible, and help ensure that collectives in other cities can as well. So far we have nearly 100 backers on this project, and we are so grateful to each and every one of you. But the fact is we need many more people to support this effort. If each of you reached out to two friends and brought them on board, we could triple that number instantly. 

Help us keep the light shining on our collective struggle for a better world. La lucha sigue.

HAPPY LABOR DAY!!
