Hello, we are Team SEJ (Students for Economic Justice)! We want to thank you for your support of our work as interns. We have been learning about the labor movement, networking with different organizations and building our skills around research and policy advocacy. We gained a lot from the public speaking workshop and enjoyed our time with the United Taxi Workers of San Diego and other amazing workers. Our internships would not have been possible without the support of donors like you.
We are holding a series of fundraisers to ensure more college students like us have the opportunity to find their voice and path to contribute to a San Diego that is better for all of our families.
We invite you to the Big Kitchen restaurant next Thursday, July 26! Your donation of $15-25 not only gets you a delicious plate of spaghetti, salad and a brownie — it puts you on location where Whoopi Goldberg once worked as a waitress! The Big Kitchen is featured on the Food Network and is known for supporting San Diego grassroots organizations. There will be henna tattoos, a raffle featuring great prizes and a lot of fun-loving progressives for you to meet.
If you have time, we’d love to have you for dinner and thank you for your support in person. Please consider buying a ticket to the Big Kitchen SEJ Fundraiser Dinner today.
