APALA Know Your Rights Training
July 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
Do you work for a more just, fair, and equitable world? Are you overworked and underpaid? Do you have trouble securing the leave you need to take care of yourselves and/or your families? Does your organization struggle to live up to its ideals in the treatment of its workers?
Come to the next APALA Membership Meeting on Wednesday, July 11 to learn about the basic rights all workers have in the workplace, hear about experiences of workers who are and are not union members, and discuss how APALA can best support you as a worker regardless of your union membership. This meeting will be an opportunity for you to connect with labor lawyers, fellow AAPI workers, and build a network of support that you need to effectively accomplish your work while also taking care of yourselves. This meeting is part of a mini-series of worker empowerment meetings APALA-DC will be holding during the summer leading up to a 3-day Organizing Institute that we will be hosting with the AFL-CIO on August 3-5.
Light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.
