Faith, Labor, and the Road to Racial and Economic Justice

Faith, Labor, and the Road to Racial and Economic Justice: Connecting Past and Present

Sunday, May 17, 2:00–3:30 p.m. in the Forum at All Saints Church, Pasadena

Labor and civil rights pioneer Charles Johnson — now 102 years old and the first African-American to work as a dining car steward for the old Southern Pacific Railroad — will join Patsy Howard — co-executive director of the Los Angeles Black Worker Center — to explore where we are and where we want to be on the road to economic justice.

Join us for light refreshments and stimulating conversation on the challenges and opportunities facing black workers today, and how our faith community can join in the broader effort for racial and economic justice across communities.

Sponsored by the Economic Justice-Nonviolence Working Group and the COLORS Ministry (Christians Offering Love to Overcome Racism in Society); Co-sponsored by the A. Philip Randolph Institute, L.A. Chapter.
