Popular Alliance For Undocumented Workers’ Rights Bringing Back #Right2Work Dinner Series


Isaiah Zagar’s Magic Garden

For the second time, the Popular Alliance for Undocumented Worker’s Rights (PAUWR) has pulled together another #Right2Work Dinner Series. The mission for this series is to bring awareness of undocumented workers not being able to work legally to the restaurant industry, and to give undocumented workers a platform for sharing stories about their struggles in the industry.

So if you’re in the mood for a little solidarity (and some really good food), here’s the list of upcoming dinners, which will all be donation-based:

Monday, April 25th, 7 p.m.- Mosaic artist Isaiah Zagar‘s private studio, 1005 Watkins Street

Food will be prepared by private chef Samantha Carrie Johnson, Mike Strauss of Taproom on 19th, Chris Paul of Herban, and Valerie Erwin of Geechee Girl Rice Cafe. The dinner is BYOB, and The Bad Tequila Project will put on a live performance.

Monday, May 9th, 7 p.m.-Win Win, 931 Spring Garden Street

This one is a collaborative dinner with chefs from Kraftwork, High Street Hospitality, Pizza Brain, Little Baby’s Ice Cream, and Starr Restaurants preparing the food. There will be a cash bar, and DJ Tony Mont will play some tunes.

Monday, June 6th, 4 p.m.- Lemon Hill, Sedgeley and Lemon Hill Drives

An outdoor barbecue will finish off the series with live music from local musicians. In addition to a special dish provided by chef Val from Prohibition Taproom, Federal Donuts will provide some snacks, and Crime & Punishment Brewery will bring their beer. It’s likely there will be a large roast as well, so bring the family for this one.

Each of the dinners will feature speakers (including chefs, owners, undocumented people, and activists) who will talk about their demands for moral justice in the restaurant industry. To learn more and make your reservations for the dinners, go here.
