Child care workers join #MoralRevival

Child care workers joined the #MoralRevival day of action on Monday, September 12, 2016. We stood alongside hard-working Americans, the Fight for $15, Rev. William J. Barber, II, Repairers of the Breach, and others to demand that our elected leaders and candidates move to higher ground.

Our leaders must embrace morally just policies like a $15/hour living wage and health care for all, and stand against racism, sexism, discrimination and attacks on voting rights.

“We’re here today with a simple message for politicians and elected leaders: standing with the 64 million working people fighting for $15 per hour and union rights is the right thing to do,” said Elizabeth Rosario, a Florida childcare worker who is paid $13/hour. “We’re going to keep on marching and keep on speaking out until our elected leaders not only see the difference between right and wrong, but demonstrate that vision in their actions.”

Take a look at the must-see highlights and some of the best photos from across the country.
