Back in 2006, members of the Women of Inspiration injured workers group at the Injured Workers Community Legal Clinic (IWC) shared their difficulties sleeping at night. Their physical pain and worries were keeping them awake.
Rather than lying sleepless alone at home, the women decided to be sleepless together, where they could make their worries known to the government and the public. The Women continue to be sleepless, 17 years later, and continue to hold vigil to bring awareness to the consequences of workplace injuries and ask for justice for injured workers.
Please tell us how you would finish this sentence: “Workplace injury makes me sleepless at night because… ” and submit your anonymous response.
We would love to share your experience at this year’s May 31st vigil taking place at 8pm EST via Zoom.
