Housekeepers at the Woodfin Suites Hotel are still struggling to keep their jobs after standing up for their rights under Emeryville’s living wage law. Throughout the country, immigrant workers are fighting to work, support their families, and be treated fairly – in a climate of racism, scapegoating and violent immigration raids. Come join Woodfin workers, faith leaders, Emeryville residents and friends in a ceremonial procession from Emeryville’s City Hall, through the Bay Street shopping center, and on to the Woodfin Suites. Show the Woodfin and other Emeryville businesses that we will stand with the housekeepers, and all immigrant workers, until they are free to work with dignity.

If you’re coming on public transit, take BART to the MacArthur station and take the free Emery-Go-Round shuttle (Hollis Route). The shuttle stops on the corner of Park and Hollis.
