Spotlight On Labor At Santa Monica Democratic Club October 26 Meeting:

The Santa Monica Democratic Club welcomes Madeline Janis as guest speaker when it puts the spotlight on the labor movement at its monthly general membership meeting on Wednesday , Oct. 26, at St. Anne’s Church, 1519 20th Street, 7 p.m.

Janis will present an overview of current labor issues, sharing her insights into the political prospects of the labor movement heading into the presidential election year, with Q & A.

In addition, there will be presentations from organizers and workers involved in the major current labor struggles in the Los Angeles area:

– the Responsible Hotels Project of UNITE/HERE, working with the Hyatt hotel workers;

– the California Nurses Association (CNA),

– the United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW), which recently averted a strike against California supermarkets; and

– the CLEAN Carwash Campaign working on behalf of carwasheros and their right to organize.

Madeline Janis is co-founder and executive director of the Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy (LAANE), a leading organization in the effort to build a new economy based on good jobs, thriving communities, and a healthy environment.

LAANE has helped lift tens of thousands of working people out of poverty and has won major health and environmental victories for communities throughout Los Angeles County.

Ms. Janis led the historic campaign to pass L.A.’s living wage ordinance, which has since become a national model, and is widely regarded as an innovator in devising strategies to create good jobs and healthy communities.

The program is free and open to the public.
