The People's Organizing Collective is Cornell's re-organized United Students Against Sweatshops labor organizing group. We seek to provide a safe(r) space for students to mobilize against oppression at our university and beyond. POC intends to build upon past Cornell USAS victories — including the 2017 student-led effort forcing The Cornell Store to sever its ties with sweatshop-profiteer Nike — while also providing a new anti-racist and anti-sexist space for students to advance a radical vision of labor justice in both the campus and local communities.
Interested in becoming an organizer? Thinking about getting involved? Come check out our meetings Fridays at 4:30pm in Stimson 105.
