Annual Award Celebration

Dear CEJ Supporters,

We are excited to (once again) invite you to join the Coalition for Economic Justice (CEJ) in honoring the ATU Local 1342 and Starbucks Workers United at our 2022 Annual Awards Celebration on September 15th, 5:30-8pm. We’re pleased to be holding this year’s event at TriMain (2495 Main Street, Buffalo, NY 14214), the site of one of CEJ’s founding fights.


This year, we are excited to be honoring ATU Local 1342, as represented by local president Jeffrey Richardson, to both celebrate the ratification of their new contract and in thanks for all their work keeping our city moving safely over these last two years and so many more. Also being honored are the workers of Starbucks Workers United who have not only unionized the first (and second) Starbucks in the country, but contribute to a national movement unionizing one of the largest chains in the country.


We sent you an invite this past spring, followed by the need to postpone as we began and continue to, once again, process a new community crisis. Choosing to celebrate in September does not mean these crises have faded. While we continuously dedicate ourselves to the fight, our community must remember to come together to create moments of connectedness and shared joy in the celebration of our victories. We look forward to making such a moment with you this September 15th.
