Sunday. 8/5, 5pm-8pm
Laundry Workers Center Victory Party/Fundraiser!

Where: (le) poisson rouge, 158 Bleecker Street, New York, New York 10012

After months of hard work and some truly historic victories, ITS TIME TO CELEBRATE!

Please join members, staff, family and friends of Laundry Workers Center this Sunday, August 5th from 5-8PM at Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker Street for a night of drinks, karaoke, and performances in honor of the members and workers who have inspired us all with their commitment to building a lasting movement for change.

There’s lots to toast to! We’ll finally be celebrating our historic election win at Hot and Crusty Bakery, the bargaining of the Hot and Crusty Workers Associations’ first contract, a huge victory at the 2 Thayer Street Tenants Association, our new partnership with La Fuente/New York Civic Participation Project, the commencement our new 12-week Organizing Institute, the production of our very own documentary (thanks to the amazingly Rachel Lears ad Robin Blotnick!) and much, much more!

Despite sustaining our work COMPLETELY UNFUNDED over the last 11 months, we have been able to progress at a remarkable pace as an organization because of the commitment and dedication of our members and the unrelenting support we have received from the community. We’ll be honoring those who have helped us along the way, and celebrating the lasting partnerships we have formed with those who understand our vision for a truly worker-led, grassroots organization committed to systemic changes in our workplaces, communities and lives. We’ll be toasting to you all!

We’re grateful to have our very own Felicito Tapia spinning for us all night! Light refreshments will be served. Cash bar. Karaoke will be offered throughout the night, for a $1 donation per song. Our karaoke finals will be HEATED, so be prepared to take down the King of Karaoke himself, Benjamin Dictor!

$10 admission at the door, which will be going directly to our New Organizing Fund. While we can’t divulge the details, our next organizing campaign is quite ambitious, and will require a substantial amount of time, commitment and resources. Every little bit of financial support will go a long way in moving these campaigns forward! We NEED your support!

Join us Sunday, and lets celebrate how far we’ve come together. We wouldn’t be here without you!
