"We believe anyone should be allowed to ride a bike around and haul trash, no matter where they were born."
ARTISAN BEVERAGE CO
"Artisan beverage coop will be closed (paid holiday) on May 1 to celebrate international workers day / The May Day strikes. In solidarity with workers world-wide who call for more democracy, equality, and justice, we hold our mission as more important than just money or "return on equity." The Coop movement has long been at the forefront of workers rights, democratic member control and caring for community."
WILD ROSE FARM
"I'm closing on May Day in solidarity with all of the workers in my community, especially those whose lives, livelihoods, and homes are unjustly threatened due to their immigration status."
