L.A. MARCH Update!
It's a war on workers, and the Teamsters are leading the fight back! Join thousands of Teamsters and thousands more from other unions and community, environmental and students groups in Los Angeles March 26 for L.A. MARCH: Our Communities, Our Jobs.

Mobilizing with us, Grammy award winning Latin rock and hip-hop band, Ozomatli, will be there to show solidarity and take part in Americans' fight for good jobs at Pershing Square on March 26!

Winner of three Grammy awards and two Billboard Latin awards, Ozomatli is dedicated to addressing social justice issues--a hallmark of Ozomatli's work ever since the band formed in 1995 as part of labor protests in Los Angeles.
"I've always felt that music is the key to every culture, the beginning of an understanding," said vocalist and trumpet player Asdru Sierra. "It's a language far more universal than politics."

Don't miss it!

American Workers Vs Multi-Billionaires

When WI Gov. Walker picked a fight with working people, Pittsburg hip hop artist Jasiri X went to Madison, worked his way into the mob of 70,000, and shot this video for his latest protest song, “American Workers vs Multi-Billionaires.” Jasiri X will be in LA on March 26 to perform the song!

Jasiri X is a Pittsburgh hip hop artist who became nationally known in 2007, with the song “Free the Jena Six.” The song was named 2007 Hip Hop Political Song of the Year and quickly galvanized the community in support of the youth unlawfully incarcerated in Jena, LA. Jasiri is president of LYRICS, Inc. (Leading Young Rappers In Career Success) and a founding member of One HOOD, an organization of men working against violence in black communities.
