Join us in this action, inspired by Los Angeles street artist and activist Ramiro Gomez, to place cardboard cutouts of workers in neighborhoods near the Los Angeles Convention Center, in collaboration with the Los Angeles Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO affiliates, National Day Laborer Organizing Network, worker center partners and other community allies. The cutouts represent the work we do as union members, highlight crucial industries and bring attention to those whose voices we feel are underrepresented.
