TONIGHT 11/18: Jobs and Worker’s Rights District 11 Action Team Meeting
WHEN: Wednesday November 19th 6pm to 8pm
WHERE: Excelsior Senior Center 4468 Mission St.
On September 26th, Communities United for Health and Justice (CUHJ)*, held a successful People’s Summit where people who live and work in District 11 came together to weigh in on a community vision and set of priorities for the future of the district. We emerged from the Summit united and filled with bold, inspiring action ideas. Three Action Teams – Jobs and
Worker’s Rights, Youth Empowerment, and Affordable Housing – came out of the Summit and in October, each team held their first open community meeting, including a Youth Empowerment community meeting hosted by Coleman Advocates. This month and next, the Teams will hold followup community meetings.
If you live, attend school, or work in the Excelsior, Mission Terrace, Outer Mission, OMI, Cayuga Terrace, or Crocker Amazon Neighborhoods and are concerned about jobs and worker's rights in our district, please come out to this evening’s community meeting.
All are welcome! Please bring neighbors and friends. Refreshments will be provided. To RSVP or for more info, contact Laylaa Abdul-Khabir
* CUHJ is a collaborative made up of the staff and members of Coleman Advocates for Children and Youth, Bernal Heights Neighborhood Center, Chinese for Affirmative Action, Filipino Community Center, and PODER.
