This past April 14 was Fight for 15’s national day of action. People in Durham and across North Carolina rallied at the McDonald’s downtown. I was there to say a few words for Duke Teaching First. I was really honored to link arms with home care workers and fast food workers, union members, and representatives from Southerners on New Ground, the North Carolina NAACP, the local chapter of BYP100, as well as others, to demand economic democracy in these United States.
I wanted to share my words.
