“Tomas Robles, former Executive Director for Living United For Change (LUCHA), will speak before the Democrats of Greater Tucson this Monday, Sept. 26, noon, at the Dragon’s View Restaurant at 400 N. Bonita Ave.
A former Sergeant in the US Marine Corps, Mr Robles has worked for numerous non-profits and social activist organizations, while earning a BA in Transborder Studies from ASU in 2011.
Following his Marine Corps service in 2008, Tomas has worked as a Community Organizer and Deputy Field Director for Promise Arizona, Educational Coordinator for the Cesar Chavez Foundation, as a Fellow in the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (AFL-CIO & Cong. Raul Grijalva’s office), Outreach Coordinator for the American Farm Workers, and currently serves as Deputy Campaign Manager for Arizonans for Fair Wages and Healthy Families.”
“Arizonans for Fair Wages and Healthy Families is a coalition of working Arizonans, business leaders and community leaders dedicated to improving the living standards of all Arizonans. The coalition is working to gradually increase the minimum wage to $12 by 2020 and to ensure that everyone can earn paid time off to take care of themselves or a loved one when they get sick.”
