"Organizing for Economic Justice: A Call to Action"
Saturday, May 20 - 9:30am - 3:30pm
Columbus Mennonite Church; 35 Oakland Park Ave Columbus, OH 43214
Why should workers organize? How can we build a diverse and inclusive economic justice movement? How does international trade policy hurt workers in Ohio? What is the Central Ohio Worker Center doing to address worker rights here in Columbus?
Together we will explore these questions in a summit bringing together labor leaders, workers, and local activists involved in the struggle for economic justice.
