On November 19, freelancers and freelance-allies across the nation celebrated a #FreelanceIsntFree Day of Action. In Manhattan, we gathered at 7 different co-working locations to get campaign sign-ups, network with other freelancers, and spread the word about nonpayment. Nationally, freelancers rallied in thier home towns and online to show solidarity for the #FreelanceIsntFree movment!
If you haven't yet, join the campaign to end nonpayment and make the future of freelancing better for all.
Here are a few of our favorite moments:

If you hire a freelancer, pay them. Otherwise, you're stealing. #FreelanceIsntFree

This is awesome. We need a list of all the #FreelanceIsntFree participants. I feel like you’re my people. We’re stronger as a group.
