On February 24th, hundreds of members of the Bargaining for the Common Good network gathered virtually to hear from organizers from SEIU 1199 NE and members of Bridgeport Generation Now about a groundbreaking BCG campaign in Connecticut bringing together union workers and community members to fight for racial justice.

Connecticut is a state with 17 billionaires and crippling inequality. The BCG coalition in Connecticut is pushing for progressive revenue reforms in Connecticut, taxing the rich in order to provide the services communities and families need in the midst of the the Covid-19 pandemic.

You can watch the full recording of the webinar here. The BCG network will host a follow-up Q&A with key organizers of the Connecticut campaign on March 16th at 4pm EST. Register here.

Bargaining for the Common Good is a project of the Kalmanovitz Initiative, the Center for Innovation in Worker Organization, and the Action Center on Race and the Economy.
