“Durham City Council wants to overturn ban on collective bargaining” Did you ever think you would read that headline in a NC newspaper? Durham city council will vote on April 2nd to pass a resolution in support of recognizing the city workers union. Let that sink in sisters and brothers, times must be a-changin’. Let us take inspiration from our peers in Durham. Believing the impossible is possible, let us march forward in unity and work to bring power back to the people of our state! Happy Monday!
In Solidarity, Ashley Hawkins
