The Struggle for Workers’ Rights in Houston
Christine Diaz, Moderator
Tuesday, September 7, 7pm
Rothko Chapel (1409 Sul Ross St, Houston, TX 77006)

On the day following Labor Day please join the Rothko Chapel for a discussion of the current state of worker rights here in the Houston area.  Organized in conjunction with the national Interfaith Worker Justice Committee campaign titled “Labor in the Pulpits, on the Bimah, in the Minbar,” the program will explore the links between faith, labor, and justice through conversations with four local workers involved in organizing efforts.   Workers will present personal reflections on unionization, health and safety issues, wage theft, and the importance of organizing for worker justice and respect for labor laws.

Christine Diaz, local labor leader and co-host of the KPFT radio program “Voices at Work” will moderate the conversation.  This program is co-sponsored with the Houston Interfaith Workers Justice Center.

Flyer also attached.

Laura Boston
Houston Interfaith Worker Justice, Director
