For the last forty years, elected officials from both parties, and their appointees, have cut resources earmarked for public services. Public services have been privatized by greedy corporations seeking to make a profit at our expense. Government and public service jobs have been cut, which hurts what few services remain. Housing, healthcare, education, transportation and much more have been negatively affected.
OHRD believes we must organize ourselves to stop this bi-partisan attack on services that meet human needs.
We organize with public sector workers and the communities they serve to protect and expand our right to public services and the social safety net.
We also work simultaneously to beat back the expansion of public institutions in the areas of mass incarceration and militarism.
