Subject: WED - Restaurant Worker Bill at City Hall

Dear Friends and Allies,

As many of you may know, we have been organizing for the last two years

to introduce the Responsible Restaurant Licensing Bill into the New

York City Council. The bill would reward responsible restaurateurs, and

revoke the licenses of irresponsible restaurant owners who repeatedly

violate labor laws and thereby put the public's health at risk.

Please join us Wed., May 10th, from 3-5pm as the Black, Latino, Asian

Caucus of the New York City Council hears us and decides whether to

support restaurant workers in their struggle for their rights!

Wednesday, May 10th, 3-5pm, City Hall Small Hearing Room.

Call us for more information, 212-343-1771.

Thank you,

Rajani & Saru
