SAN JOSÉ– In This Together: Working in Silicon Valley
February 28, 2019 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
SAN JOSÉ– How can we thrive, and not just survive, in the Silicon Valley? Join the 1500 Stories Project in partnership with Silicon Valley Rising and the Tech Workers Coalition for an evening of community building around economic inequality in the Silicon Valley. Come share your work stories, meet others in your community and discover ways to make a difference. On Thursday February 28, 2018 from 6:30-8:30pm in the theater lobby at Mexican Heritage Plaza, we invite you to In This Together: Working in Silicon Valley. This event is free, as is parking. 1500 Stories is a collaborative art and digital storytelling project about economic inequality in the U.S. 1500 Stories is honored to partner for this public forum with Silicon Valley Rising, a coalition that works to reduce occupational segregation and income inequality by raising wages and creating affordable housing, and with the Tech Workers Coalition, a coalition of workers and organizers in and around the tech industry working for social justice, workers’ rights and economic inclusion.
