Raising Arizona: the Stand for Az’s Working Families



    “Please join us on July 30th at the Global Justice Center in Tucson for a community forum to discuss the powerful initiatives for economic justice happening in Arizona this year. 

    Together, we’ll examine ways in which our community will be strengthened by raising the minimum wage and by providing hardworking Arizonans with the opportunity to earn paid sick days for their health and well-being. 

    Learn more and share your voice with fellow community members including special guests Tomas Robles, Campaign Manager for AZ Healthy Working Families and Shayna Kessler, Associate Director of the Workers’ Rights Clinic at the University of Arizona College of Law. 

    Doors open at 3:30pm and forum begins promptly at 4:00pm. 

    We look forward to seeing you there.”
