Join us this Wednesday Nov. 4th to watch:

Made in LA -- an award winning feature documentary about three Latina women who work in garment sweatshops in Los Angeles and decide to organize to gain basic labor protections from the clothing retailer Forever 21.

The inspiring film shows their personal journeys from victimization to empowerment as they work together to lead boycotts and file a public law-suit to gain their rights in the workplace.

Check out the film's website here:
