Kim Bobo and Worker’s Rights this Sunday

Kim Bobo StoryLabor Day is about laborers! It a day to take time, as a faith community, to consider the inherent worth and dignity of all people, and the importance of advocating for fair treatment of all people.

This Sunday, at 10 am worship:

We are pleased to have Kim Bobo, Executive Director of Interfaith Worker Justice preaching on minimum wage, the plight of undocumented workers, wage theft, and most importantly what we can do locally to advocate for workers rights.  http://www.iwj.org/

Kim was named one of 14 faith leaders to watch in 2014 by the Center for American Progress, and one of Utne Reader‘s “50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World” in 2009. Kim helped coin the phrase “wage theft.” Her book Wage Theft in America helped get the issue on the national radar. Prior to founding IWJ, Kim was a trainer for the Midwest Academy and Director of Organizing for Bread for the World. She is co-author of Organizing for Social Change, the best-selling organizing manual in the country. A music lover, Kim directs the choir at her UCC church. She also enjoys visiting with her twin sons, Eric and Benjamin, who are away at college.
