Happy Mother’s Day to all our New York City friends. As you celebrate all the powerful women and mothers in your life, take a minute to become a supporter of Waging Nonviolence — and receive a free ticket to an early preview screening of Robin Blotnick and Rachel Lears’ documentary The Hand That Feeds.
This 20-minute selection of scenes from their film about the Laundry Workers Center’s Hot and Crusty restaurant campaign dramatizes the possibilities that result when labor organizing combines with grassroots, direct-action movements. They’re hosting a special screening on May 17 at the Workers Unite! Film Festival, and we’ve got tickets for the first 10 people who become members of Waging Nonviolence—starting at as little as $2 a month!
