The Workers’ Studio Family Day will engage families and members of the community through artistic expression and an open dialogue on critical issues affecting immigrant workers in New York, such as wage theft. Day labor workers will share their experiences and knowledge with the community. Families are invited to participate in art-making, musical performances and a photobooth, all while they learn about day laborer workers’ rights and the power of workers organizing for justice. Let by artist Sol Aramendi.
The event will include the presentation of the Jornalero Wage Theft App that was developed under this project by Aramendi.
