 Media Coverage of 10/22 Working Families Press Action



  
Dear Emory, 
Yesterday 40 clergy and religious leaders from the Christan and Jewish faith traditions stood together on the steps of Minneapolis City Hall for a press conference to call on City Council members and the mayor to pass paid sick time and fair scheduling policies for Minneapolis working families.
The press event was incredibly powerful. We decry these disparities and we talk and we gather data,” said Rev. Laurie Eaton, pastor at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church in Minneapolis. “But when concrete policy actions are proposed to truly improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of people suddenly those options are unrealistic, na├»ve, ill conceived and too costly for business. My friends this is exactly what systemic racism looks like.” Click here to view her full speech.
We garnered attention in the media, with elected officials and our partners. Check out the press coverage provided below:
KSTP: "Faith Leaders in Minneapolis Rally for Workers' Paid Sick Leave":
