    November is End Violence Against Women month. One month is not enough. Everyday, women still struggle against violence and discrimination both at home and at the workplace. We as women do not spend the year waiting for November to speak up. All around New York City and beyond, we are leading the fights in our communities not only for gender equality, but for social, economic, and workplace justice.

    This November, let’s seek to end violence against women through the celebration of women! On Thursday, November 20th, join Laundry Workers Center as we host our Women’s Forum: Women’s Struggles and the Labor Movement. Come listen to women leaders tell their stories of overcoming struggle, empowering others, and winning change. Share your own story in our discussion, and participate in our interactive workshop to explore and strategize around what it means to be a woman in the labor movement today.

    Speakers for the evening:

    Teresa Gutierrez– Co-coordinator, May 1st Coalition for Workers & Immigrants Rights
    Candice Sering– Chairperson, Gabriela NY and Member of the IWWD, International Working Women’s Day
    K. Samuels– Picture of Homeless
    Moraima Ortiz- Member Organizer and Leader, Laundry Workers Center
    Christine Lewis– Leader, Organizer, Cultural Outreach Coordinator of Domestic Workers United

    Panel to be followed by break out sessions.

    Childcare will be provided for the evening.

    To empower others, we must have the courage to fight.

Solidarity Call-in to Liberato

Workers have been organizing at the famous Liberato restaurant in the Bronx for several months now. But the restaurant still refuses to pay even minimum wage to their workers, and they are harassing worker leaders by arbitrarily changing their duties and work schedules.

99 Pickets is calling a solidarity call-in campaign on Saturday 9/5 12-2pm, Sunday 9/6 12-2pm, Monday 9/7 12-2pm. More info here.
