This event launches the final report from the Working for Dignity: Low-Wage Worker Study of Santa Cruz County, produced by UCSC Center for Labor Studies, and a community conversation on economic justice. The event will include a panel discussion on the state-wide campaign to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, featuring local workers and small business owners, community organizations, and experts on the minimum wage. A wide range of community groups working on issues such as affordable housing, wage theft & legal services, paid family and sick leave, voter registration, and immigration reform will be on hand with information about services – and how you can get involved in the fight for economic justice. Refreshments provided and translation available.

Co-sponsored by the UCSC Center for Labor Studies, the Economic Justice Alliance, Chicano Latino Research Center, UC Humanities Research Institute, California Rural Legal Assistance, SC Day Worker Center, and the Museum of Art and History.
