The Center Welcomes Kevin Kish to Sacramento

The Center for Workers’ Rights gathered fellow workers’ rights advocates to welcome Kevin Kish, the new Director of the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, to Sacramento on his first day in the position.

Prior to his appointment, Mr. Kish was the Director of the Employment Rights Project at Bet Tzedek Legal Service, a fellow member of the Coalition of Low-Wage and Immigration Worker Advocates.

The Center hopes to work with Mr. Kish to ensure the Fair Employment and Housing Act is enforced for low-wage workers throughout the state.
