Stand Up To Hate

________________________________________
We cannot sit on a council for a president who tolerates bigotry and domestic terrorism. President Donald Trump’s statements were shocking. When I heard them, I thought to myself, “I’ll pray for you because you really need to be prayed for when you make those kind of statements.” It’s never acceptable to tolerate racism and bigotry, let alone defend it. We resigned on behalf of America’s working people, who reject all notions of legitimacy of these bigoted groups.

We joined President Trump’s American Manufacturing Council with the intent to be a voice for working people and with the real hope that it would result in positive economic policy, but it’s clear the council would never be an effective means for delivering real policy that lifts working families—and his remarks were the last straw. It has become yet another broken promise on the president’s record.
From hollow councils to bad policy and embracing bigotry, the actions of the Trump administration have consistently failed working people. As a labor movement, we stand united against hate.
Share this graphic to reject any notion of legitimacy for groups like the white nationalists.
Thank you for all of the work each of you do to ensure that our movement is inclusive and reflects our best values. This is a difficult time for our country, but our labor movement will be at the tip of the spear, making sure that working people will not be divided by hate.

In Solidarity,
