- Paid Sick Days: We have joined forces with the Seattle Coalition for a Healthy Workforce to fight for Paid Sick Days in Seattle. Currently, 190,000 workers in Seattle don’t have paid sick days. Passing this Ordinance is good for workers, our families, and our community.
- Reproductive Justice: We will be organizing a workshop for young API women and their mothers or aunties to talk about sex. Yes, we said that taboo word “sex.” Young API women have a high rate of unplanned pregnancies and STD’s and we continue to shy away from talking about it. Please join us for this inter-generational dialogue on 10/8/11. Stay tuned for more details.
