Sanctuary Restaurant Movement

We are asking you to literally put your money where your mouth is by supporting the Sanctuary Restaurants (www.SanctuaryRestaurants.org) movement.

Launched earlier this month by Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC United, www.ROCUnited.com), a restaurant worker advocacy group, and www.Presente.org, a Latinx social justice organization, Sanctuary Restaurants provides resources to restaurants, enabling them to support our community, including our undocumented immigrants.

We won’t swallow hate and we need to make sure that the restaurants that we are giving our money to are standing with all-of-us. Here’s how: Go to www.SanctuaryRestaurants.org, read about the movement, and sign up. (5 minutes) Print these cards. Keep them in your wallet, and take them to your favorite restaurants next time you go. Or call or email your favorite restaurants and tell them about Sanctuary Restaurants. (5 minutes)

Graphic Packaging International: Helping us Reach 150,000 Stop Hunger Now Meals!

Our own Doug Evans, Controller at Graphic Packaging International, has arranged for payment and packaging of 10,000 meals. The company is moving us towards our goal of raising $43,500 this year in order to provide 150,000 meals to be shipped to hungry children around the world. The event will be held at GPI and volunteers will be Doug’s co-workers. What a great community service and team-building event. Thank you Doug and Graphic Packaging International!

Think your company might be interested in doing something similar? Contact Karen Noe for more information at 408-781-6166, KarenNoe240@gmail.com
