Love and Justice 2017

 Join the Movement for Rights and Dignity for Immigrants and Workers!

Shone Farm Pavilion, Saturday, October 28, 2017, 6 to 10 p.m.

Live Auction, Dinner, Dancing, Love, and Justice!

 

Put on your dancing shoes and join us at Shone Farm in Forestville for a community fundraising event to honor 16 years of organizing and transformation with Centro Laboral de Graton (Graton Day Labor Center)!

Centro Laboral de Graton is a worker-led center that is on the front lines of the immigrant and workers’ rights movements in Sonoma County. Its mission is to advance and protect the human, labor, and civil rights of day laborers, domestic workers, and their families by promoting participatory democratic leadership and worker solidarity.

As the first year of the Trump presidency comes to an end, let’s come out strong as a community to support and celebrate the Graton Day Labor Center’s important work so they can continue to engage and organize with workers for justice and dignity, with love!

Keynote speaker Pablo Alvarado, Executive Director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network,  will share what issues and challenges most affect day laborers and immigrant workers in the current political climate. Pablo has lead the fight for justice and dignity for day laborers and their families throughout the U.S. for over 20 years, and was named one of Time Magazine’s 25 most influential Hispanics in America.

The evening will also feature live music with Dr. Loco’s Rockin’ Jalapeño Band, playing everyone's favorite R&B, Oldies, Cumbias, Salsa, and Norteño classics with that special movimiento twist that only Dr. Loco has!

The live auction will be led by local philanthropist and entrepreneur Tara Jasper. There will also be a raffle featuring gift baskets stocked full of Sonoma County bounty!

Local food, beer, cider, and wine is included in the ticket price.

Come celebrate organizing for justice with love, and invest in advancing the rights and dignity for workers right here at home in our community! Become a sponsor, donate to our raffle or live auction, or purchase your tickets online today!

Shone Farm Pavilion is located at 7450 Steve Olsen Lane, near Forestville.
