Jody Leader, of Brookline, said she feels an obligation to support activists because of her ethnicity and as a member of Showing Up For Racial Injustice Boston, a group of white people supporting racial justice.
“I have to fight for $15. Nobody can live off minimum wage in this country. Everyone deserves a living wage,” she said. “Part of this is, as a white person, I feel I have a responsibility to stand behind and with Black Lives Matter and this is one way that we can be active in the movement for people of all colors.”
Mariama White-Hammond, a minister at Bethel A.M.E Church in Jamaica Plain, said the wage increase is a matter of fairness and justice for everyone.
“A wage is about basic human dignity. It is about honoring the fact that if you do what you are supposed to do, you have a right to live a decent life” she told the crowd. “So $15 is not just a random, arbitrary number – it is about putting our money where our mouth is. It is about saying that workers deserve to live dignified lives.”
