Unheard Voices Rising Up: Workers’ Survival, Resistance and Power! - LaborFest Writers
The Housing Crisis, Homelessness, and How Capitalism Thwarts Self-Help and Organizing Efforts
LaborFest Writers’ Group will explore how unheard voices are rising up, resisting, and discovering their power. This movement is happening at work and wherever San Franciscans call home, whether it is brick and mortar or tent city. People are speaking out and demanding to be heard as they struggle to earn a living wage, to protect their rights, and to be able to stay in the city they call home. Join us for an evening of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, memoir, and music by LaborFest writers Phyllis Holliday, Keith Cooley, Susan Ford, Margaret Cooley, Nellie Wong, Jerry Path, Richard Chen and Alice Rogoff.
