Hotel Workers Rising - HUGE Rally, Feb 24
If you only come to one rally this year... make this the one.

 
PJA marches July 2 hotel worker rally

Since June 2008, workers at Le Meridien and the Hyatt Fisherman's Wharf hotels have fought for a fair process to choose whether they want union representation. Now workers face layoffs, cutbacks, and the growing economic crisis.  Join PJA, Pride at Work, Harvey Milk Democratic Club, and a host of community and religious groups to march alongside hotel workers and express support for their voice in the workplace.

Be a part of one of the biggest local actions in support of low-wage workers this year!

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
