Summer of Solidarity: Faith Communities Showing Up with Hospitality and Tourism Workers!

Event Description:

CLUE invites the faith leaders and communities of Southern California to join us this summer in direct action and mutual aid in solidarity with 17,000 hospitality, tourism, hotel and food service workers represented by UNITE HERE! Local 11 who are preparing to go on strike in July! We will discuss why so much is at stake in this struggle for the workers and all of our communities, share numerous opportunities to support this campaign throughout the summer, and in particular invite ICUJP leaders to take direct action with us on Century Boulevard on the afternoon of Thursday, June 22!

Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE) educates, organizes, and mobilizes the faith community to accompany workers and their families in their struggle for good jobs, dignity, and justice.

Join the conversation with our speaker:

Matthew Hom (he/him) is the Faith-Rooted Organizer in Los Angeles and Santa Monica at CLUE (Clergy & Laity United for Economic Justice). He grew up in a multiracial and interfaith Chinese and Ashkenazi Jewish family in Cerritos, studied history and music at UC Irvine, and earned a Master’s in Jewish Studies at NYU. Since pursuing a career in social justice organizing, he has worked with the California Democratic Party and CAIR on electoral campaigns and Census outreach, and served in volunteer leadership roles with Jewish progressive organizations.

In his role at CLUE, he organizes clergy and congregational leaders from diverse faith traditions as they build communities of action for economic and racial justice, and in solidarity with workers and immigrants. Matthew teaches Hebrew School at Temple Isaiah, is a member of the Boyle Heights Chavurah, and serves on the Grant Advisory Committee of the Jews of Color Initiative. He feels called by his faith and identities to help build a vibrant and transformative multiracial democracy in Southern California.

With a small part-time staff and lots of volunteers, your donations help us meet our budget and expand our reach.

So far this year alone we have presented a series of exceptional Friday Forums exploring:

We know that you are asked to support a wide array of worthy organizations.  All we ask is that you include ICUJP among them with as generous a contribution as you can afford. 

We are especially grateful to whose who can make a sustaining monthly donation of $5, $10, $25, $50, or $100. If you're able to give an annual contribution of $250, $500, or $1,000, it would allow us to mount more events and conferences throughout the year.  If you belong to a congregation or organization, please explore whether they can make a donation or grant.
