They didn’t have proper PPE: These Black health care workers got the vaccine. They say distrust isn’t just historical

Keta White is a Black health care worker at Germantown Home, in Philadelphia’s Mount Airy neighborhood. And she’s one of 13,000 members of District 1199C, a majority Black- and brown-led union that represents Black workers in all fields in the major health care institutions in the city — behavioral, mental health, and child care facilities, as well as employees who provide health care services within the city’s prison systems.

Governor Wolf Awards Over $2 Million to Direct Care Workforce Crisis

“This funding will allow District 1199C to work with important partners in the labor movement as well as Employers to improve care options. By providing quality training and education tools that will result in allowing the workforce to be successful in their career paths as they continue to grow and provide direct care for the most vulnerable  within hospitals, long term care facilities, and at their homes.”  District 1199C is proud to be involved in this effort and believe that we will continue to improve the patient experience”. Elyse Ford,  Vice President

Digital Advocacy Toolkit: Paid Sick Leave for Frontline Workers

The Philadelphia City Council has the opportunity to pass a bill that would give all workers the ability to have paid leave if they test positive for COVID-19 or were in contact with someone who tested positive and must self-isolate. This is more important than ever.

The bill gets voted in committee on Monday, June 22nd. It will then get a final vote the first week of July. ​You should use this toolkit everyday until the first week of July to make the biggest impact.

Your voice can make all the difference!

1199c has developed this social media toolkit that you can use to reach out to your city council member. You can use the graphics to tell your story as well as post on your councilmember’s page.
