Join us for the Women’s Summit: Ending Sexual Violence in the Workplace, bringing together diverse stakeholders — including employers, workers, advocates, legislators and policymakers — to lift up the need for one fair minimum wage and several other gender equity policy proposals at the intersection of sexual violence and economic justice. Additionally, Restaurant Opportunities Centers United will unveil their new employer-designed workplace policy on sexual harassment and violence.
The event will feature remarks from ROC United Co-Founder and Co-Director, Saru Jayaraman, Ms. Foundation for Women President, Teresa Younger, and Columbia Law School’s Kimberle Crenshaw.
With a Donald Trump presidency imminent, it is more important than ever that America’s restaurant workers and their allies engage in substantive dialogue on these important issues. A challenging four years lies ahead. But as long as we are united in solidarity for women’s and workers rights, this movement will not be defeated.
