Kim Bobo of Interfaith Worker Justice is coming to the Triangle

Join us for a Crucial Conversations luncheon with Kim Bobo, founder and director of Interfaith Worker Justice, on Thursday, September 27. She will talk about how wage theft undermines the rights of working people. Register today!

Named one of Utne Reader‘s "50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World" in 2009, Bobo helped coin the phrase “wage theft” for employer practices that rob earned income from millions of Americans. In North Carolina, documented wage theft costs workers and their communities millions of dollars in much-needed and legally earned income every year. Bobo’s book Wage Theft in America helped place the issue on the national radar.

Interfaith Worker Justice has been a leader in the fight for economic and worker justice since 1996. It organizes, educates, and mobilizes people of faith to change the practices and policies that leave so many people in need. In addition to founding Interfaith Worker Justice, Bobo co-authored Organizing for Social Change, the best-selling organizing manual in the country.

Please join us to hear Bobo’s powerful message on September 27.

Space is limited, and registration is required.

Admission includes a box lunch. (Box lunches will be available at 11:45 a.m. and the program will start at noon)
