Let Justice Roll

Join others in the Oklahoma City Faith Community on Tuesday, September 26, at 4 pm, as we welcome The Rev. Paul Sherry, National Campaign Coordinator of LET JUSTICE ROLL. Dr. Sherry will explain the national LET JUSTICE ROLL living wage campaign, a nonpartisan program of more than seventy faith-based and community-based organizations working in support of federal legislation to raise the federal minimum wage, as well as state legislation and ballot initiatives to increase local and state minimum wages.

  • It is immoral that people work full time, but have to choose between paying the rent and paying for child care.
  • It is immoral to have wages so low that people working in the food industry depend on food banks to help feed their families
  • It is immoral that health care aides can’t afford health insurance.
  • It is immoral that the children of child care and school support workers can’t afford college.
As a community, we must continue to work together to confront unjust wages.
Please plan to join us – mark your calendars now.
