Fighting for Economic Justice: A Discussion on Wage Theft Enforcement as a Key to Public Safety, March 3 @ 12:30 PM

Join Public Rights Project and the Travis County District Attorney’s office for a behind-the-scenes look at the impact of local government in protecting their constituent’s rights and safety. Hear how new DA José Garza is working to prove the legal system can meet the needs of the people through fostering trust with the community. He understands that  addressing wage theft and lifting up working people are essential to public safety.

March 3, 2022, 12:30pm – 2:00pm EST, Zoom Webinar
RSVP today to hear this case study—perfect for community organizers, advocates, lawyers, and state and local governments working to move the needle towards equitable enforcement and justice.

Featured guests will articulate the vital link between economic justice and public safety. Survivors of economic abuse like wage theft are 4.5 times more likely to have also been a victim of violent crime, which in turn leads to financial fallout, putting communities at even higher risk of abuse as workers, consumers, or tenants.
