She co-chairs the Dallas Workers’ Rights Board and serves with North Texas Jobs with Justice and the Workers’ Defense Project. She is also active in the national ecumenical, multicultural Equity for Women in the Church Community. She is the author of Joshua, Judges, Ruth Immersion Bible Studies, many articles, and other publications.
Here is Rev. Docampo’s invitation to you to the movie “Inequality for All,” followed by a discussion of workplace inequality and related faith questions.
As a member of the North Texas Jobs with Justice I am pleased to invite you to help us build a strong religious coalition that accompanies workers in their struggle to receive a family-sustaining wage that can pay the bills, health benefits, regular working hours/shifts, full-time employment, and to stem the many ways that employers steal wages.
These workers worship with you, live in your neighborhoods and look to their faith for hope to face each day’s challenges. The presence of religious leaders who can converse with them about their faith as it intersects with their work and who walk with them, literally, in their struggle is vital if we are to attain justice in Dallas’ workplace.
We are also hosting a movie night followed by a discussion on how workplace inequality impacts each one of us economically and socially, regardless of our economic class and to ask the difficult faith questions related to this.
October 1: Movie Night at the Angelika-Dallas for a screening of the film,
“Inequality for All” @ 7:10 pm
Tickets: $10 (cash or check at the JwJ table outside the theater; limited quantities) or $11 at the door. All are welcome!
