Sunday: Emergency Meeting For Day Laborers To Discuss Sandy Relief (En Español)


A Facebook invite appeared on the Worker’s Justice Project (Proyecto Justicia Laboral) page inviting laborers to meet and discuss the state of their industry and rebuilding the community.

According to their bio, “Worker’s Justice Project is a democratic, worker-led organization committed to empower low-wage workers to gain a voice at workplace and create sustainable economic opportunities through the power of organizing.”

Here is the text of the invite:

Atención: Esta reunión de emergencia hace un llamado a todos los miembros del centro de Bay Parkway y Jornaleros de la área de Brooklyn para tratar el futuro de nuestro centro que fue afectado por el Huracán Sandy y como reorganizarnos para reconstruir nuestra comunidad juntos, unidos y organizados.

¡No Faltes!

Participá: tu presencia es importante!

I used my rudimentary Spanish to translate it to something like:

Attention: This emergency meeting calls on all members of central Bay Parkway and laborers in the Brooklyn area to discuss the future of our institution that was affected by Hurricane Sandy and reorganize and rebuild our community together, united and organized.

Not to be missed!

Participate: your presence is important!
