Repair The World: Detroit says
Visit the Restaurant Opportunities Center (ROC) in Detroit to learn about the often invisible problems of restaurant workers. Many of those workers—often with children—qualify for food stamps and live a paycheck away from homelessness. Discrimination, wage theft, and abusive working conditions are common. This program will feature a vegetarian, kosher-style Cajun/Soul fusion lunch at ROC’s COLORS Restaurant. Following the meal we will learn about issues faced by restaurant workers from a panel including COLORS staff. Cost of the meal is $18 per person. Any additional donations are tax-deductible and go to support ROC.

To reserve a spot, make a check out to “ROC-MI,” indicate # of attendees, and mail to the Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue, 1457 Griswold St, Detroit, MI 48226. - or - make an online payment via Eventbrite:

Deadline is April 6th. The event is co-sponsored by the Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue, Temple Kol Ami, Congregation T’chiyah, the Ann Arbor Reconstructionist Congregation, and the Reconstructionist Congregation of Detroit, Detroit Jews for Justice and Repair the World.
