This holiday season in a year unlike any before it, we recognize that healthcare workers are still in the thick of this crisis, without adequate protection or support. We know most of you are feeling the same stress, frustration, and fatigue as we are. And so, we wanted to share a special project that is giving us hope: Between The (Front) Lines, a zine written by the SEIU HCWI member political organizers (MPOs).
We wrote this zine to capture our experience and our successes as MPOs, as we trained and organized to engage and turn out healthcare workers this election, and to build political and worker power in the long term.
Taking stock of this year, we must not only honor those we have lost and the sacrifices so many of us have made, but also, the ways we have stood with and for each other.
This zine is dedicated to everyone fighting on the front lines. We hope these writings (and art and poetry) bring you a sense of hope, connection, and a little light to brighten the darkness.
