Vanderbilt Graduate Workers United stands with anti-racist organizers in Denver, whose right to assemble and denounce injustice has been criminalized by the Denver and Aurora Police. We join a growing chorus of labor unions that call on District Attorneys Dave Young and George Brauchler to drop charges against these recently arrested organizers. An effective fight for workplace rights and protections is a fight for the value of Black lives. Police repression of protest is an extension of employers’ refusal to negotiate with workers. Drop the charges! Black Lives Matter!
