11th Annual I'll Be There Awards

DC Jobs with Justice (of which DC DSA is a member) is proud to announce our Eleventh Annual “I’ll Be There” Awards, scheduled for Thursday June 27, 2013. As per our local tradition, we will celebrate at the AFL-CIO Samuel Gompers Room located at[masked]th Street NW, Washington, DC 20006.

This year DC JwJ is leading the fight with ATU to keep our WMATA transit system public, affordable, and safe. We are also keeping up the battle with UFCW and the community to hold Big Box stores accountable with the passage of the Large Retailer Accountability Act. In addition we are working in solidarity with the Paid Sick Days for All Coalition, and the Wage Theft Coalition to pass critical legislation that will protect our city’s most vulnerable and fastest growing sector of low wage workers.

This year we are honored to celebrate the following local heroes who have all contributed their time, talents, and passion to our mission to protect workers’ rights:

• Ann Hoffman, National Writers Union
• The DC Employment Justice Center
• Rabbi Bob Saks, of Jews United for Justice
• The Progressive Student Union of George Washington University

With special entertainment from Candice Mills! https://www.facebook.com/candice.mills.754/info?collection_token=1021766900%3A2327158227%3A35

**And a special tribute to DC Jobs with Justice Board Chair Roger Newell for his endless dedication and his legacy in student organizing. *******

We hope you’ll be a part of the celebration as we honor labor, community, faith, and student leaders for exceptional solidarity. Please consider placing an ad in our ad book or attending.

If you have any questions you can call Lillian at[masked]-1542.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
