IMG_1234As affiliates of the Interfaith Workers Justice network of Workers Center we have the opportunity to participate in events that help us to grow and learn from other Workers’ Centers in the country. On the weekend of July 16-18 two staff members, Rebecca Fuentes and David Pittman as well as Nelly Martinez, member of the Leadership board went to the Workers’ Center Convening organized in Chicago, IL.

The weekend-long bilingual gathering in Chicago brought together worker center staff, members, workers, unions and religious leaders to collectively work on strategic planning, capacity building, and relationship building for the IWJ Worker Center Network.
