Women's Rights are Worker's Rights! Roundtable discussion
January 27 at 5:30pm
SEIU Local 535
447 29th St
Oakland


Join Local 535, Labor Project for Working Families, UC Berkeley Labor
Center, East Bay Coalition for Labor Union Women, Pride at Work and the
AFL-CIO for an organizer's roundtable with organizers from India, South
Africa, Thailand and the US. The organizers will share their innovative
strategies for organizing women working in informal and nonstandard work.
In India, the 700,000 member Self-Employed Women's Association (SEWA) of
India organizes incense rollers, street vendors, rag pickers and salt
producers in a movement that has created a network of services to support
the needs of informal workers. In South Africa, the Self-Employed Women's
Union (SEWU) organizes and negotiates contracts for street vendors and the
Women's Farm Project organizes rural women workers. HomeNet Thailand
organizes homebased workers and works with similar organizations throughout
the world. Together, these women are organizing women workers to protect
their rights as women and as workers in their workplaces and the global
economy.

Refreshments will be served.

For more information and to RSVP, contact Kerry Newkirk at (510) 893-8766

Parking: There is limited street parking with some spaces available behind
the building. There is a parking lot across the street. The meeting room
is most easily accessed through the back door of the building.
