The bullying of working people on the jobs and in the communities is escalating. There is both a California and a national campaign to pass legislation against workplace bullying which is a serious health and safety concern for workers and the public.

This workshop will draw the links between an epidemic of bullying and police terror evident in places like Ferguson, Baltimore and North Charleston.

Bullying on the job and police harassment of Black and minority people are two sides of the same coin.

Bullying is also connected to the growing militarization of the police with billions for armored vehicles and machine guns while social services are cut and public education is privatized and destroyed for the poor and oppressed.

Speakers Include:
Greg Sorozan, SEIU NAGE 282 President
Brenda Barros, SEIU 1021 San Francisco General Hospital Chapter President
Dr. Derek Kerr, Former Doctor at Laguna Honda Hospital and Whistleblower
Carrie Clark, California Healthy Workplaces And Former Teacher/Whistleblower
Jamie Tillotson, Former San Francisco Public Defender Who Was Arrested For Defending African American clients rights at Hall of Justice
