“The flame that’s always lit”
Director of Field Mobilization, Amalgamated Transit Workers Union
“I think one of the faults of people in the movements that we have, that we all share, is we tend to get involved because of a single fight or single campaign. We’re very energetic — we put our time and money into it for 3 months then we burnout or win, whatever happens and we let it fade. DC Jobs with Justice is sort of the flame that’s always lit. When big campaigns, when big public relations focused fights come, DC Jobs with Justice is there but when the light turn off, when the cameras go away, they’re still there.
