As the repository for the Bay Area’s working class history, the SF State's Labor Archives and Research Center has invited us to help make a record of this critical time from the perspective of workers.

There are a few petitions to sign that would be very helpful to workers. Please consider signing on to these. It may not seem like much but it could make a big difference to many. 

They are:

As you know we’ve been looking for ways we can help in the new world of “social distancing.” We’re planning to have our next Council meeting on March 25th by zoom video, more on that in another email.
