Amazon workers rally at Shakopee facility for worker safety, climate justice

Amazon workers and community members rally, holding signs and a banner that reads "Workers Rising for our Future." Khali Jama speaks into a microphone.

“What was special about this rally was introducing an additional line of corporate campaigning around the climate crisis,” TakeAction Senior Climate Organizer Jesse Meisenhelter said. “Amazon is in a moment where it’s expanding across our state, and it’s becoming a larger and larger decision maker — not just in what the quality of work looks like in Minnesota but also quality of life. And with that expansion comes responsibility to take meaningful action.”
