Our Mission, Vision, and Actions!

¡Si! brings together labor and consumer groups to hold corporations accountable to uphold human rights by changing industry-wide market incentives. Increasing transparency between workers and consumers, encouraging large-scale support of fair working conditions, and pressuring corporations to respect human rights on the job through real financial consequences, can achieve dignified workplaces.

  • We foster increased communication between workers and consumers through delegation trips, speaking tours, and video-call conversations on a regular basis.

  • We embrace positive solutions – we encourage institutional purchases of union-made products that empower workers.

  • We engage labor and consumer groups together to penalize companies not respecting human rights with real consequences through financial loss.

We envision a transformation of corporate incentives in regards to workers’ rights. As corporations are competing aggressively to skimp on workplace costs, we foresee a reversal in this ‘race to the bottom’ through alliances, education, and action.

¡Si! Solidarity Ignite is a fiscally sponsored project of the Alliance for Global Justice.

Our Values

Solidarity, not Charity

“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.” Lila Watson

Grassroots Empowerment

“Sola el pueblo salva al pueblo.” No one but we, the people will save we, the people. – Honduran General Workers Confederation (CGT) saying.

Creating Transparency

We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly …before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world. This is the way our universe is structured. This is its interrelated quality. We aren’t going to have peace on Earth until we recognize this basic fact of the interrelated structure of all reality.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
