On Monday March 15th, 7 workers from the Workplace Project of Long Island will be stopping in Philadelphia as they walk all the way to Washington, D.C. for the Immigration Reform Demonstration on March 21st.
Meet at the Catholic Worker
House of Grace at 1824 E Lehigh Ave
Monday March 15th at 6:30 pm
for a pot-luck and talk.
We will hear stories from the travelers about their struggle, their work, and how it relates to immigration reform! Please bring your favorite dish to share.
The Workplace Project was founded on the belief that while simply providing services might alleviate some of the pain of exploitation; it would do nothing to fix the problems in the long run. Instead, it has chosen to build community centers of and for immigrants, which work through a cycle of outreach, leadership training, membership building, and organizing for change in the labor context.
We are honored to host this group and hope to see you there.
