CWTA Joins Raise the Floor Alliance for New Worker Center Collabrative Kick-Off
On December 9, Raise the Floor Alliance (RTF), an alliance of worker centers across Chicago, hosted a work center collaborative kick-off at the National Mexican Museum of Art – This is the statement of Chicago Women Take Action (CWTA).
CWTA members Marilyn Katz, Judith Kossy, and Ann Breen-Greco attended the December 9 Raise the Floor Alliance event at the National Mexican Museum of Art. Raise the floor is comprised of a number of worker groups and advocates fighting to protect the rights of the low-wage workers in Illinois. The partnership is focused on halting the attack on the Illinos’ Workers Compensation system as part of the Governor’s “Turnaround Agenda.” CWTA supports the empowering work RTF prioritizes, and is proud to stand with RTF in the fight for quality job access and employment opportunities.
CWTA is a city-wide group of diverse women of all ages working on issues that impact us and our communities. For more information visit http://chicagowomentakeaction.com
