Women on the Frontlines: Defeating Corporate Giant Amazon

Grassroots community organizations and unions forced Amazon to withdraw its plan to build a headquarters in Queens, NY. This is a people’s victory over an anti-immigrant, anti-worker deal that threatened to wreak havoc in Queens and all of New York City. It reaffirms that it is the collective organizing power of poor and working-class people that has led to monumental victories throughout the history of the United States – from housing rights to worker rights to civil rights to LGBTQ and women’s rights. We in the PSL have had the honor to work along aside amazing, strong and incredible women organizers who played leading roles in this struggle against Amazon.
