Thanks to everyone who came out for another inspiring and vibrant Brandworkers Reyes Magos celebration. Here's to a 2017 full of resistance and bold struggle! You can share the experience with tweets and photos from the festive day.
Brandworkers is the first worker center led by the factory workers behind the soaring local food industry. Brandworkers members, mostly immigrant workers of color, are developing a new and innovative form of workplace association to achieve dignified jobs and a just local food system.
Each year, your community gathers for an informal celebration of El Día de los Reyes Magos (Three Kings Day). There will be plentiful food from our home countries, and seasonal cocktails. We'll also have piñatas, balloon animals, a magic show, and face painting for the kids. Join us!
Saturday January 14th, 2017, 1pm-5pm 22-43 Jackson Ave, Long Island City, NY 11101 E,7, or G trains to Court Sq.
¡YA ES TIEMPO PARA EL DÍA FESTIVO DE BRANDWORKERS!
May Day, International Workers' Day, is our time to commemorate the struggle of working people for the 8-hour day, an end to child labor, and much more. While great strides have been made within the movement, historically marginalized workers continue to face wage theft, health and safety violations, and racial and gender discrimination within the unlikeliest of industries—the “sustainable” local food manufacturing industry.
