2022 ALIGN Movement Builders Awards

 Registration is closed for this event

Join ALIGN: The Alliance for a Greater New York on September 28 for a night of celebration, reflection, and joy to honor the movement builders who are organizing and mobilizing workers for a more just and sustainable New York.

This year, ALIGN is celebrating the wave of worker and climate organizing sweeping the nation. We are proud to be honoring:

  • Amazon workers from New York to Alabama who have stood up to corporate abuse, including the Amazon Labor Union and RWDSU BAmazon Union;
  • Sarita Gupta and Erica Smiley, authors of The Future We Need, a new book that envisions the future of labor organizing; and
  • Rahwa Ghirmatzion, Executive Director of PUSH Buffalo, and James Shillitto, President of the Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA) Local 1-2, whose work blazes a trail for our renewable energy economy and a just transition for workers.

When: Wednesday, September 28th, 2022 from 6–8:30 PM

Location: IBEW Electrical Industry Training Center, 48-40 34th St, Long Island City, NY 11101 | Directions
