As part on an ongoing effort to bring Faith and Labor together in NH to recognize our common quest for economic justice and worker rights and to determine how we can become more powerful as a unified force for the public good, I’m pleased to invite you to the next Faith and Labor gathering and dialogue at 12:00 Noon-2 p.m. on Friday August 9 (11:45 a.m. sign in).  SEIU’s Joe Cicirelli has learned that Seattle “Fight for $15” organizer and Labor leader Jonathan Rosenblum will briefly be in NH to visit family, and Jonathan has agreed to give up some of that visiting time to join us to discuss his book Beyond $15: Immigrant Workers, Faith Activists, and the Revival of the Labor Movement and to facilitate a dialogue about how the insights and experiences from Seattle might apply to worker struggles in New Hampshire. As Jonathan tells of the inspiring Seattle campaign for livable wages that involved a significant number of immigrant workers, he also describes how important the faith and labor alliance was to launching a successful worker rights campaign. Through our discussion with Jonathan, I hope we can come away with some valuable tips and tactics for NH worker rights efforts.
This gathering will be held at the SEIU 1984/NH State Employees Association headquarters at 207 North Main Street in Concord. To register, email and provide the names of attenders plus their faith affiliation and/or union affiliation, if any. A light lunch will be provided. Also, please share the attached flyer (PDF and JPEG versions) with others and spread the word so we can continue to expand our reach in the faith and labor communities (and please encourage advance registration so we’ll have adequate food and seating).
