• Stand in Solidarity with NUHW
    As many of you are aware, NUHW represents over 4,000 Kaiser mental health clinicians and other professionals who have decided to hold a 5 day strike the week of December 10th. These employees are urging Kaiser to increase staffing to improve care for Kaiser mental health patients. Despite being in bargaining since June, to date, Kaiser has not made any substantive counter-proposals that would meaningfully change the current situation in which clinicians are overbooked with appointments, they often cannot adequately care for their patients, and patients are too often pushed into group therapy or out of the Kaiser system altogether. If Kaiser wants to continue to be a global leader in healthcare they need to be a leader in mental health as well. Currently Kaiser mental health patients face waits as long as 6 weeks or more to receive care they desperately need. Come join these NUHW represented employees in their statewide fight for better mental health care! Make sure mental health patients are treated with the same respect and dignity as other patients. Please help support in this strike so that Kaiser’s 9 million California members can have access to the mental health treatment to which they are legally entitled. Below are the dates, times and locations of our strikes. Please put these in your calendar and let us know you’ll be there! Thank you so much for your support! 6AM to 4PM Rallys at noon daily 11:30AM to 12:30PM Monday December 10th: · Los Angeles Medical Center at 4867 W.

  • Movie & Discussion: Harvest of Empire
    With all that is going on in the news lately, its important to understand why so we may educate others and help those who are fleeing violence. Bring a snack or drink to share. 7PM Social Time 7:30 Movie will begin, followed by discussion Summary from IMDb: A powerful documentary that exposes the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the immigration crisis we face today. From the territorial expansionist policies that decimated the young economies of Mexico, Puerto Rico and Cuba, to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, Harvest of Empire provides an unflinching look at the origins of the growing Latino presence in the United States. Adapted from the landmark book written by journalist Juan Gonzalez, the film tells the story of an epic human saga that is largely unknown to the great majority of citizens in the U.S., but must become part of our national conversation about immigration.
