COPS Metro November 16th Civic Academy for Living Wage

San Antonio AllianceUncategorized

Dear leaders, friends and allies of COPS and the Metro Alliance,

Did you know that 1 out of 5 people in San Antonio lives in poverty?

Even worse, 1 in 3 children is growing up in poverty in Bexar County. Many families are working very hard and still not earning enough to make ends meet. In response, leaders from COPS and the Metro Alliance have launched a campaign to raise wages for many of the lowest paid workers in San Antonio.

Finally, in order to build a strong base of support, COPS and the Metro Alliance will have a Fall Assembly for leaders and allies. Click here for a flyer for our Fall Assembly on Sunday, November 16th, 2014, Sacred Heart Church Civic Center, 2123 W. Commerce St. (And here’s the flyer in spanish!)

Thank you,
