There is such power in the reading of the names and ages of the 146 victims - Jewish and Italian girls, the laying of flowers, and tolling of the bell at the #TriangleFire site…and the red flowers for workers killed this year
Their names ring out for justice across 112 years.
March with NYC nail techs and our allies as we celebrate all the bold women and individuals who organize for justice and dignity on the job #AllHandsIn @NYHealthySalons

Today, we're thinking about folks who are clearing the roads, packing our groceries, and delivering our packages while the snow storm hammers down on New York State.
Many of these drivers and warehouse workers are working with no heat.❄️
