CWR Outreach at South Sacramento Festival

The office of Sacramento City Councilmember Mai Vang (District 8) hosts an event each year in South Sacramento to bring together community members through dance, music, art, and community resources. 

Our team was invited to host a resources table at this year’s event on October 15, 2022 and connect District 8 community members with resources about their rights at work. While kids enjoyed the entertainment and activities, we talked to many working parents and caregivers about the work of the Center for Workers’ Rights and the support we provide to workers.  Some attendees shared their stories of workplace injustice and talked with us about the importance of Supplemental Paid Sick Leave for COVID-related time off. 

Building these relationships with our city officials allows CWR to create pathways for workers’ rights policy initiatives. The vibrant community of Sacramento relies on the strength of these ties to ensure the future is one of dignity and justice for workers.
