JUFJ Labor Seder: Let My People Go Home Sick

JUFJ Labor Seder
March 17, 2013 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm
Adas Israel Congregation
2850 Quebec Street NW
Washington, DC

Each spring, the Labor Seder brings together the Jewish, activist, labor, and nonprofit communities to celebrate the freedom story of the Exodus by connecting it to present-day labor and social justice struggles in our region.

This year’s seder will highlight the crucial need for Paid Sick Days for all workers in our city and region. No one should have to choose between their health and their job. Parents should be able to care for a sick child without endangering their families’ economic well-being

The seder will feature singing, discussion, food and action. We’ll hear the stories of workers who lack paid sick days and responsible business owners who provide paid sick leave, read from an original haggadah, and take action to support workers’ rights.
