Organizing Beyond Barriers (OBB) is UNITE HERE’s nationally coordinated program to build a progressive alliance of workers and students by teaching, agitating, and inspiring people to fight for justice.
We place a lot of emphasis on training and fieldwork. People learn by doing, whether it’s hearing about the real situations of working people in a house visit, speaking truth to power in a delegation or recruiting friends, family, or coworkers to an action. Our Union is committed to inspiring people of all ages and backgrounds to join our movement.
Students and workers across the United States and Canada came together for eight weeks in the summer to learn how to organize, push forward the union’s campaigns and find inspiration in people who are willing to take up the struggle for social justice.
The OBB program strives to link up the workers’ rights movement with the student movement, the LGBTQ movement, the immigrants’ rights movement and all other movements that struggle and work for social justice. We look forward to getting to know and be inspired by you.
