Various Locations, 9 to 5

3/25/2014 — Twenty-five women from the worker’s rights organization 9 to 5 from Atlanta to San Jose joined the We Belong Together National Women’s Fast for Families on March 25th and 26th. In Atlanta, 9 to 5 members joined the Asian American Legal Advocacy Center (AALAC) and SEIU’s national Fast for Families bus tour in fasting and sharing stories of family separation. Fasters who shared their stories in solidarity included both African American workers from 9 to 5 and a Filipino DREAMer and other immigrant members of AALAC before an audience of nearly 75 community members, many of whom had not had the opportunity to hear immigrant stories before. The fasters in Atlanta broke their fast at the local immigrant-owned Yen Jing Restaurant with a family style meal and songs from a local acapella faith group.
