Defending Workers in the Age of Trump

We’ve all seen the story time and time again of the kid picked on by the neighborhood bully who, after taking a self-defense class, fights back and wins.

With the biggest neighborhood bully of all sitting in the White House, SEIU Local 721 is putting together self-defense classes of our own for workers. One kind is the all-day Unity Summit we’re organizing for July 22nd at Saint Sophia Cathedral in Central L.A. Another is our union’s Representational Excellence Program.
