Come to our Free Summer movie night tonight, Monday July 19, at 6:30 to see our featured film, Made in L.A.
This will be a chance to meet other Workers Center members who share our values of justice for and unity among all workers. There will be cookies, conversation …and connections to a struggle of workers at a Chicago plant of the multinational corporation, the Marietta Corporation, that the TCWC has been recently supporting.

From the film’s official website: Made in L.A. is an Emmy Award-winning film that follows the remarkable story of three Latina immigrants working in Los Angeles garment sweatshops as they embark on a three-year odyssey to win basic labor protections from a mega-trendy clothing retailer. In intimate observational style, Made in L.A. reveals the impact of the struggle on each woman’s life as they are gradually transformed by the experience. Compelling, humorous, deeply human, Made in L.A. is a story about immigration, the power of unity, and the courage it takes to find your voice.
This movie does contain some subtitles.
