Community Care During COVID -19
Southwest Workers Union - Centro por la Justicia offices will be closed as long as recommended to help limit potential to exposure of COVID-19. During this time our organizers will work at home and all upcoming events will be postponed including our April 4th Membership Meeting. We encourage everyone to engage in compassionate community practices and offering support to vulnerable community members especially the elders.
In this moment many community collectives are activating and we encourage folks to make their own plans and contacts for loved ones. During this moment we ask for folks to practice responsible preparation that does not feed into capitalist practices of hoarding for self. Below are a few of the ways we will be providing community care. This is not a charity, this is solidarity, our community supporting each other will get us through this, that is why our fundraising team is looking for grants and tightening our yearly budget to move funds into this work.
There are several potential methods to keep you and your family safe and we encourage our membership and allies to act wisely during this moment but take necessary precautions that in time will help us to continue building towards our vision of a just transition for San Antonio based in dignity, justice and respect.
For updates, questions donations or to volunteer you may contact us or message organizers directly. We will be following up with direct phone calls to each of our members and allies to sign up for mutual aid programs and access to food.
