What can workers do about economic injustice? And given that income inequality intersects with other social issues, such as racial and gender discrimination, access to healthcare and childcare, immigration, and environmental impacts, how can workers organize to address these complex challenges? What does such mobilization and advocacy look like in the Tampa Bay region?
We invite you—local residents, community leaders, faculty, staff and students—to join us for presentations and discussion so that you can engage these issues with workers and advocates from the local Fight for $15 movement.
Fight for $15 advocates for $15/hour and a union, but did you know that their full platform includes climate justice and racial justice? Come meet workers who are standing up to demand a living wage and stable employment and other important rights. The workers will describe their daily struggles, the conditions under which they labor, why they decided to join Fight for $15, and how they advocate for the various pieces of this expanding platform.
Light refreshments will be provided courtesy of Fight for 15.
This event is free and open to the public.
