I'm just starting to pick up this momentum -- but this looks right down the alley. This is people-centric cross-sector collective activism and alliance development -- with a spiritual/interreligious element -- my kinda thing.

What: Raise the Wage Kickoff
When: Mon, September 7, 11:30am -- 12:30pm
Where: Pershing Park, corner of Castillo and Cabrillo, across from the swimming pool at the beach

NO BERNIE SIGNS OR FLYERING!! THis is a solidarity event only.

Join us on Labor Day at Pershing Park for a rally and press conference as we kick off a campaign to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour in Santa Barbara!

Hard working people in Santa Barbara should be able to support their families above the poverty line. When local working families can afford the basics like rent, food, childcare and doctor's bills, they boost small businesses and our local economy. The cost of living in Santa Barbara is skyrocketing and wages aren't keeping up. It's time for Santa Barbara to raise the wage!

Sponsored by CAUSE, Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice - Santa Barbara, the Fund for Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara County Democratic Party, Santa Barbara County Action Network, SB Democratic Women, SB Women's Political Committee, SEIU 721, SEIU 620, UCSB Center for the Study of Work Labor and Democracy, UDW, UFCW 770

Únase con nosotros este Lunes, Día del Trabajo en Pershing Park para una manifestación y conferencia de prensa donde vamos a iniciar nuestra campaña para subir el salario mínimo a $15 la hora en Santa Barbara! Gente trabajadora en Santa Barbara debe ganar suficiente para mantener a sus familias sin vivir en pobreza. Cuando familias locales pueden con los gastos básicos de la renta, comida, cuidado de salud, y visitas al doctor; ellos incrementan las ventas de los negocios chicos y la de nuestra economía local. El costo para vivir en Santa Barbara está incrementando muy rápido y alto mientras los salarios se están quedando atrás. Ahora es tiempo que Santa Barbara incremente el salario mínimo!
