Do you want to help us fight inequality? Attend one of our rallies, events, or volunteer opportunities!
As we organize for better conditions and more power at work, it's also important that we as workers are aware of the rights we do currently have!
So join us for a know your rights training, followed by drinks and dessert! Mohini Sharma, the organizer for full service restaurant workers, will be facilitating workshops and exercises around workplace violence (particularly sexual harassment), workers compensation, and workplace hazard prevention.
While the training will focus on the context of food service, all workers are welcome!
2018 Education Advocacy Day in Albany
All students in New York have the right to a high quality education.
All kids should have:
· access to music, arts and sports
· updated and culturally relevant textbooks and current technology
· small class sizes
But not all students have these things — especially Black, Brown and low income students.
Governor Cuomo and the State Legislature must work to end racial and economic inequity in education. Join us on January 9 in Albany to demand our elected officials fund the billions they owe our public school students.
We will be leaving the Hungerford Building 1115 E. Main St Rochester NY 14609 at 6:15am on January 9th 2018. This is an all day event. We will not be back in Rochester until around 8:00pm that evening. lunch will be provided. RSVP Today!

It's been a roller coaster of a year! We've had some significant victories, which wouldn’t have been possible without our dedicated members who volunteer their time to ensure that we stay on the front-lines of the Fight for Racial, Social, and Economic Justice. That said, we also face historic and unprecedented challenges in the months and years to come.
Now is the time for us to come together to strategize and resist unchecked authoritarianism, fascism, racism, and xenophobia. On Saturday January 27th, the membership of Metro Justice will hold its Annual Member's Meeting at a location yet to be determined at 10 am.
In additional to updates from our President, Treasurer, and staff members, we will have a new slate of Council nominees for the approval of the membership.
