Celebration of Liberty and Justice for All!
Thursday, April 28

The ACLU, the Employee Rights Center (ERC), and the San Diego-Imperial Counties Labor Council invite the public to celebrate the historic and modern day connection between the labor and human rights movements at a party and fundraiser for the ERC on April 28.

This is one of our favorite events of the year–always fun, always packed, and always tons of people with whom to mingle and chat about the hot topics of the day.

Proceeds benefit the Employee Rights Center. The Employee Rights Center is the only local non-profit program dedicated to the education and advocacy to all workers, especially disadvantaged workers, regarding their rights at work.
