Our Eleventh Annual “I’ll Be There” Awards,is scheduled for Thursday June 27, 2013. As per our local tradition, we will celebrate at the AFL-CIO Samuel Gompers Room located at 815 16th Street NW, Washington, DC 20006. The Awards will take place from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
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’ Guild, The Employment Justice Center, Rabbi Bob Saks, Jews United for Justice, and The George Washington Progressive Student Union.
**And a special tribute to DC Jobs with Justice Board Chair Roger Newell for his endless dedication and his legacy in student organizing.
