POSTPONED UNTIL TBD IN MAY

For the last year, Seattle Solidarity Network has been organizing alongside the former employees of The Purple Store at Pike Place Market who were all fired en masse via email in retaliation for organizing in response to over $10,000 in unpaid wages and payroll discrepancies. Carrying on a fight as intense as this one has been for a full year is no small accomplishment, and it has truly only been made possible by the massive community support the former Purple Store workers have received. With that in mind, Seattle Solidarity Network would like to invite you to come join us as we celebrate a year in struggle against Adam Sheridan and the Purple Store.

WHAT: A jovial celebration of one year of struggle against owner malfeasance at the Purple Store that will include a traditional picket and much more.

WHEN: Saturday March 14th 12PM-2PM

WHERE: Meet promptly at 12pm in front of the Top Pot on the corner of 1st and Stewart

ACCESSIBILITY INFO: The Purple Store entrance is on a fairly steep slope. There are public restrooms nearby but they require walking down to the bottom of the slope or down a set of stairs and are gendered. We will have a couple of chairs for folks who may need them. If you would like to attend and are worried about access needs, please reach out to us via our website www.seasol.net to let us know and we will work hard to make this action as accessible and welcoming as possible.

Bring yourself, some friends, weather-appropriate gear and come ready to have some fun! We will have coffee, snacks, and other goodies. For more information on Seattle Solidarity Network’s fight against The Purple Store, check out the fight website found here: http://purplestorewagetheft.com/
