#MeToo in the Restaurant Industry

What: #MeToo in the Restaurant Industry: a Women's History Month speakout on sexual harassment in restaurants.

Who: ROC MA, the One Fair Wage Coalition, Sanctuary Restaurants and the #TimesUp Coalition

When: Thursday March, 29 1-3pm

Location: MA State House Room 437

Why: The restaurant industry has the highest incidence of sexual harassment of any industry in the nation. We believe that our industry cannot be considered to be safe when women in the industry face sexual harassment or abuse as a routine part of work. We also know that tipped workers are especially vulnerable. Please join working women who are disrupting restaurant industry norms and fighting for safety and dignity in the workplace. Women will share their stories about sexual harassment, pay inequity, and discrimination. We will be joined by ROC United President and Co-Founder Saru Jayaraman, MA state legislative champions, and community allies.
