ENGLISH BELOW:

Únase a la Vigilia para Recuperar Dignidad y Salarios Robados el VIERNES 21 DE SEPTIEMBRE.

Después de un largo día de trabajo, todos merecemos ser pagados lo que fuimos prometido. Cuando los empleadores se niegan a pagar a sus empleados, estan robándole a nuestros hijos. Es tiempo de ponerle un fin. 

Cuando los empleados de Santos Silva le exigieron que pagara $700 en salarios que les había robado, Silva llamó a la policía de Kenner para intimidarlos. Sabía que, a diferencia de otros departamentos de policía, los agentes de Kenner arrestan por cargos menores y transfieren a la gente que arrestan a ICE. Entonces sabía que su amenaza era poderosa.

Para el Dia del Trabajo, únase a nosotros en el parque frente a la casa de Santos Silva para escuchar las historias de trabajadores que fueron víctimas de robo de salario y como se están uniendo para eliminar el robo de salario y crear un Kenner mas seguro. 

USEN PLAYERA BLANCA

QUÉ: Vigilia para ponerle un fin al robo de salario
DÓNDE: Nos reunimos en SERÁ ANUNCIADO para ir juntos al arque en 3500 Arizona Avenue

ENGLISH:
We all deserve to feel certain that the harder we work, the more money we can bring home to our families. When employers refuse to pay even one dollar that an employee is owed, it’s theft and it has to stop.

Come join us on Friday, September 21st for the Vigil to Recover Dignity and Stolen Wages. 

When Santos Silva’s employees demanded he pay $700 in wages he had stolen from them, Silva called Kenner Police to come intimidate them. He knew that—unlike other police departments—Kenner Police officers make arrests for minor charges and turn the people they arrest over to ICE, so he knew the threat was powerful.

This Labor Day Weekend, join us in the park across from Santos Silva’s house to hear the stories of workers who were victims of wage theft and how they're coming together to eliminate wage theft and create a safer Kenner. 

WEAR A WHITE SHIRT

WHAT: Vigil to recover dignity and end wage theft
WHERE: Convene at TO BE ANNOUNCED to drive together to Park at 3500 Arizona Avenue
WHEN: Friday, September 21st, 5:30 p.m.

Resistance Radio Live, 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Come attend a live broadcast of Resistance Radio, which will air at 6 p.m. on WHIV-FM (102.3). Kenny Francis, who is one of the leaders of Indivisible New Orleans' steering committee, co-hosts Resistance Radio every week with Dr. MarkAlain Dery, an infectious disease specialist and community healthcare advocate.

This evening, Kenny and MarkAlain will be joined by Councilwoman Kristin Gisleson Palmer to talk about short-term rentals and affordable housing.

Although the show airs at 6 p.m., arrive early to get a happy-hour drink, mingle, and get settled.

Take Action/Mid-Term Push, 7 p.m. ’til

After the radio show, Indivisible NOLA is partnering with Jane Place Neighborhood Sustainability Initiative to provide people with the opportunity to take action about housing issues and the Smart Housing Ordinance being drafted by City Council.

In addition, Indivisible NOLA is launching an autumn push for action leading up to the mid-term elections in early November. Our general approach until Election Day will entail providing opportunities to engage in both local elections and in competitive races in Texas, Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. Among other things, we will be writing postcards to voters, and we will continue as late as 10 p.m. (or whenever we run out of postcards/addresses).

Future mid-term election events (October 15 and the weekend before Election Day) will include phone banking and voter registration.

Movement Mondays Every Month

Held monthly, each Movement Monday will include a live audience taping of WHIV’s Resistance Radio show (hosted by Kenny Francis and Dr. MarkAlain Dery) featuring an interview with a culturally or politically relevant guest and a post-taping happy hour (with real happy-hour prices) for casual but purposeful discussion of the topics covered during the interview as well as an opportunity for action spearheaded by a local community partner.

Movement Monday is a collaboration between Ace Hotel New Orleans, DJ Chinua, Resistance Radio of WHIV, Indivisible New Orleans and various community partners to create an informal space for co-operation, discourse, and movement around a variety of issues in New Orleans and nationwide.

Resistance Radio is also available as a weekly podcast. Go to iTunes or your preferred podcast app and search for "Resistance Radio New Orleans." Look for our logo in the results and subscribe.
