DSA recently endorsed the biggest national prison strike in US history. Demanding improved working and living conditions, incarcerated workers across the country are staging sit ins and hunger strikes as well as striking from work for which they are paid cents an hour.
DSA stands with incarcerated workers against the racist and classist police state and prison system, and recognizes that our prison industrial system amounts to modern-day slavery. The Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC) is calling for outside support for the strike, which began August 21 and is set to continue through September 9. IWOC has identified specific prisons to call and flood phone lines in support of the strike. Please fill out this form to join phone zaps happening daily.
