This Monday, Temple Beth El and Rabbi Suzanne Singer in Riverside hosted a Rise & Resist summit, educating local faith and community group leaders about the threat of so-called “Right To Work” and the fight currently happening in Riverside.
Rabbi Klein of CLUE provided a brief history of labor rights in the United States and explained the underhanded tactics that the millionaires and billionaires behind “Right To Work” are using to try to take away the rights of working families.
SEIU 721 executive board member Tim Burke shared what being in a union means in his life and for his community, and talked through ways that other organizations can support working families in the battle against “Right To Work.”
This was the first step in our mission to take the message of Rise & Resist to our local communities and more summits are coming soon! The next event will be on December 14 at 10 a.m. at 1545 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90017.
