If this sounds like you, Working Class Unity’s (WCU) New Member Orientation Meeting is a great place to start.

Working Class Unity is not a typical non-profit. We are 100% funded by member dues, and all our decisions are made by the Membership. We do not take grants from foundations or the state and do not solicit major donors. We are committed to building a movement for socialism in San Joaquin County.

We will discuss our work at this event, such as starting the first Tenant Union in San Joaquin County. Our tenant union is focused on building collective tenant power to confront landlords and the developer class. You can also join our book club to learn about the history of socialism in the United States, past tenant union efforts, and the best ways to help the working class organize. You can help shape our campaigns like Free Palestine and Emergency Workplace Organizing. We are a new but growing organization in San Joaquin County. Let’s build a strong working-class movement in the Central Valley together!

The text is the same as the event description.

Thanks. I started editing your intro and ended up expanding quite a bit. I did not do a good job of making an emotional appeal in my event description so thanks for adding that.

Hi {{ FirstName | default: ‘Friend’ }},

Things are not going great. Prices are sky-high, rent is eating our paychecks, and there is an ongoing genocide in Gaza. Both major political parties, bought and paid for by the capitalist class, are turning a blind eye to our struggles at home and our demands for peace abroad.

We are not alone in wanting a better world. But we know no one is going to hand it to us. We certainly cannot just vote for it. We are going to have to build it ourselves, brick by brick. The only way to do it is through the power of solidarity, of standing shoulder to shoulder with one another against the bosses, the major landlords and investors, and the political class that serves them.

If you are tired of the status quo, if you believe in the power of collective action, if you dream of a real democracy where every voice is heard, then you are already one of us.

The war on the working class is raging. It is time to fight back. Join us!​

This Thursday, March 14th, at 6 PM, we are holding a WCU New Member Orientation. Come learn about our organization, meet fellow comrades, and learn about how you can join us in forming San Joaquin’s first Tenant Union and helping us win a “Ceasefire Now” in Gaza demand from our Congressman, Josh Harder.

RSVP now to join us in person or via Zoom. Together, we can build a better world.

Working Class Unity is not your typical nonprofit. We do not take grants from foundations or the state and do not solicit major donors. We are 100% funded by our dues-paying members. Every decision we make is made by our members because we believe in building a real movement for socialism in San Joaquin County, led by the working-class people in our organization.

At our New Member Orientation, you will hear about our work, like building our Tenant Union. This is not about begging politicians for crumbs; it is about tenants building collective power and demanding what is rightfully theirs: housing.

You can also join our book club to learn about the history of socialism, how tenant unions have won victories in the past, and how we can best organize the working class today.

We are also coordinating with our Palestinian sisters and brothers to support the Free Palestine and Ceasefire Now campaigns. We also support workers who organize their workplaces.

We are a young organization, but we are growing fast. Join us. Together, we can build a powerful working-class movement in the Central Valley!

In solidarity,
Working Class Unity
