The Eugene Springfield Solidarity Network brings together labor unions, student groups, religious congregations, and grassroots community organizations, activist, and organizers to support the civil and economic rights of all working people – especially the right to a decent standard of living, the right to a stable job, and the right to organize
We use fundamental organizing principles (the A.E.I.O.U.'s of organizing) to create positive change with in our community. Our focus is on the kitchen table issues that most directly affect workers such as wages, housing, healthcare and the workers right to organize and collectedly bargain. We recognize that there are other social, environmental, and poetical issues that are important to workers beyond the kitchen table issues and that is why we promote solidarity through out our network of members, allies, and friends.
