Workers' Rights

March 24th 4:30pm to 7pm

Councilmembers Tim Burgess, Lorena González, Lisa Herbold, Rob Johnson, Debora Juarez, Mike O’Brien, and Kshama Sawant to hear stories from a panel of workers from a cross section of low-wage jobs in the region. A panel of worker organizations will also share ideas for policy solutions to some of the problems these workers face on the job.

Allyship’s Trinidad Vidal will represent LGBTQ workers’s voices on the Workers’ Panel during Trinidad the Summit. Trinidad Vidal is a passionate activist-advocate for immigrant trans women of color low-wage workers in addition to being a member of that community. She believes transgender women deserve access to legal living wage work. Trinidad is a part of LGBTQ Allyship’s Workers’ Rights Trainer program, where she does outreach to local LGBTQ workers about Seattle’s labor standards and LGBTQ economic justice. The Wage Theft Ordinance is particularly important to her, having experienced stolen wages on the job as a domestic worker.

Allyship is bringing 15 LGBTQ workers’ to the Summit. We have 5 slots left. Please contact Denechia Powell, info@allyship.org, if you are interested in being part of this event and learning how you can be more involved in the LGBTQ economic justice community!
