Share Your Story!

We are collecting stories to show what it really looks like to be a front-line, essential, and service industry worker working during the pandemic. Tell us yours!

Tell us your tales of heroic workplace organizing and mutual aid; stories of disrespectful customers, horrible bosses, terrible landlords; ways of surviving during the pandemic; visions of a new world. Stories, poems, songs, and artwork all welcome!

#AlwaysEssential is a campaign of the Mid-Valley Industrial Workers of the World. The Mid-Valley branch extends through the middle Willamette Valley in Oregon. Our focus area includes Benton, Linn, Marion, and Polk counties.
