UUSC Get-Together with Saru Jayaraman
Justice Is Choosing Compassionate Consumption
Sunday, February 24, 2013
4:00-5:00 p.m. (EST)
Join UUSC for a compelling conversation with Saru Jayaraman, author of Behind the Kitchen Door. Here's what Danny Glover — actor, producer, and cofounder of Louverture Films — has said about the book:
"With Behind the Kitchen Door, Saru Jayaraman has introduced a fresh and essential perspective on our culture's food obsessions and dining habits. By highlighting the lives and circumstances of workers who are often unseen and unheard, she has helped us see that labor is a key ingredient of authentic sustainability, and greatly enriched our understanding of those people who have — whether we have recognized it or not — been part of some of the most important celebrations of our lives."
Behind the Kitchen Door is not just a book — it is a unique opportunity to change the national conversation about how to create a truly sustainable food system. Consumer demand changed the restaurant industry by asking for sustainable, locally sourced, and organic (SLO) options. Together, we can now shift restaurant practices from the bottom up by requesting respect for workers' rights in every dining establishment — putting the "W" in SLOW.
UUSC's Get-Together includes a live interview and interactive discussion with the author.
Get ready to take part with these simple steps:
- Register for the Get-Together.
- Invite others in your congregation and community.
- Purchase the book and add it to your book group's reading list.
- Let us know you bought the book.
- Plan a potluck gathering.
- Join us on February 24 to talk about worker justice and ethical eating.
