POWER (People Organized to Win Employment Rights)
Towards Land, Work and Power--
People Organized to Win Employment Rights (POWER) is a fighting organization of welfare recipients, domestic workers, shoe shiners, child care workers, security guards, unemployed workers and other no- and low-wage workers.
Toward Land, Work & Power is a book written for other organizers by POWER organizers Jaron Brown, Marisa Franco, Jason Negron-Gonzales and Steve Williams. Ending with an alternative vision for San Francisco and the world, the book attempts to equip us with an understanding of racism, sexism, homophobia and imperialism so that we can move toward land, work and power for all.
Join us for a night of revelry and strategy as POWER celebrates the release of the book in Spanish, Cantonese and English. Betita Martinez, longtime Bay Area sctivist and author of "De Colores Means All of Us," will be introducing the event.
