Event description

Description

How can immigrant women workers achieve safe and just work environments free from sexual harassment and violence? Join us as Bernice Yeung, ProPublica reporter and author of In a Day’s Work: The Fight to End Sexual Violence Against America’s Most Vulnerable Workers, shares the harrowing experiences she chronicles in her book. She is joined by Rachel Isreeli of the Center for Family Life’s Cooperative Development Program in Sunset Park, which organizes cooperatives in the traditionally exploitative domestic work industry. Joanna Morales, a home care worker, will share her perspective as a worker-owner of Golden Steps Elder Care Cooperative.

Presented in partnership with the Brooklyn Community Foundation and The New Press. Books will be available for purchase in the BHS gift shop and the author will offer signings following the program.
