Thanks to an anonymous donor, we have 20 tickets to tonight’s United Farm Workers Holiday Reception at the Teamsters (6p at 25 Louisiana Ave NW). UFW President Arturo Rodriguez will talk about the organizing campaigns of the UFW and the negotiations with Gerawan Farming, where over 5,000 farm workers work. The DC City Council is one of more than nine cities and jurisdictions that have passed unanimous resolutions in support of the Gerawan workers. Email [email protected] if you’d like to attend.
