Labor Day Rally for Healthcare Justice at Kaiser
Thousands of SEIU-UHW members across the state are publicly rejecting Kaiser’s greed and hypocrisy this Labor Day — protesting against Kaiser’s unfair labor practices and demanding a new contract that protects our futures, families, and patients.

“Dolores” Documentary Night Screening
Sep 3 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized.

With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life … Continued
