Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Saru Jayaraman at the University of Michigan
Friday, Sept 15
Join actresses Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin with workers’ rights advocate and co-founder of the Restaurant Opportunities Centers (ROC) United Saru Jayaraman for a discussion on economic inequality in Michigan and nationwide.
Given their strong ties to Michigan, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are touring the state to call for higher wages and working and living conditions for working people statewide. After the speakers share their own experiences with the issue, they will share how Michiganders across the state can take action.
The event at the University of Michigan is free. Tickets are not required and doors open at 1pm. If you’d also like to join Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin for lunch, consider attending the event prior at Miss Kim! Details here
