      YOU ARE INVITED TO THE FIRST MEETING OF THE KANSAS CITY
      FAITH/LABOR ALLIANCE

      Please RSVP to Justin Stein, KC Jobs with Justice
      Organizer, by e-mailing justin@mojwj.org or calling 816.805.2385

      This past year has demonstrated what is possible when faith and labor leaders come together to fight for the common cause of workers’ rights.  Collaboration between faith and labor leaders in Kansas City has produced the following accomplishments.

      • Protecting workers’ right to organize and collectively bargain – faith and labor leaders successfully joined forces to beat back attempts to pass Right-to-Work and Paycheck Deception legislation.
      •  Supporting low-wage workers in their fight for $15 and a union – faith and labor leaders have stood on strike lines and accompanied low-wage workers back to their jobs after taking action to demand $15 and a union.
      • Educating the public about the costs of our state legislature’s refusal to expand Medicaid for 300,000 Missourians.

      We all know there is still much work to do, and that is why we need each other now more than ever.  When faith and labor leaders work together, working families in Missouri do better.  That is why Jobs with Justice is announcing the formation of a Kansas City Faith/Labor Alliance.
       
      The Faith/Labor Alliance is a monthly breakfast meeting where faith and labor leaders can learn about current issues related to workers’ rights.  It is a space to build relationships, get educated, and take action to further the cause of working families in our region.  We invite you to attend the first meeting of the Faith/Labor Alliance on

      Thursday, Feb. 25th, 7:30 AM till 9:00 AM
