Economic Justice Hevra Meeting

August 10, 2015 • 6:30 pm-8:45 pm •
+More details
Attend a meeting to get involved in the Justice for Farmworkers Campaign with BJ. We are asking questions, having conversations, and educating the community to expand our collective understanding of ethical consumption to include the predominately immigrant laborers who make New York’s multi-billion dollar agricultural economy possible. Through the passage of the Farmworkers Fair Labor Practices Act, we hope to ensure that laborers who produce the food on which we depend in NYS can have the dignity and equality they deserve. If you are interested in attending this meeting or have questions, please contact Lisa.

Monday and Tuesday | 88th Street Frankel Hall
Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday | 86th Street Social Hall

Help us fill our meal gaps this summer! Becoming a food donor is easy. Families, individuals or groups can get together to prepare a light meal for 10-12 people at the synagogue, the church, at home, or even order in a light meal for our guests. We are also in need of additional sleepover volunteers. Perform a mitzvah all while sleeping through the night! To sign up or learn more, contact Larissa or call x272.
