The cards represent only a portion of the community members boycotting the store in support of the workers.

CARDSAlthough Sonny Kim wasn’t in the store, we tried to give the cards to Sharon Kim, a manager of the store and Sonny’s wife.

Contract negotiations continue this week; learn more about the campaign, and take action!
