Dems lunching and learning
La Plata County Dems Club Lunch presents a dynamic duo on Tues., Sept 5, at noon via Zoom (register for link at laplatadems.org/events). We’ll start the session with Cristen Salaz, the owner of WeFill (3465 Main Ave.), Durango’s original refilling station and zero-waste shop stocked with healthy soaps and cleaners and more. There’ll be a short Q&A afterwards.
Then we’ll hear from attorney David Albrechta, who will talk about his partnership with Towards Justice, a nonprofit law firm representing workers in litigation and other advocacy in efforts to build worker power and advance economic justice in Colorado and across the country. One of the projects involving Durango is to ask the City for legislation on raising the minimum wage. This benefits both worker and employer. Q&A to follow as well.
We record these sessions, so if you miss it, you can see it by Sept. 7 at laplatadems.org.
