Danny Glover has participated in many social justice causes over the years, including as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and as an anti-racism activist. Now he’s coming to Houston to support the Houston Needs a Raise Campaign and low-wage workers across the city.
In Houston, 20% of workers are paid less than $10 per hour – condemning many families to poverty. Despite this, last year CEOs of Fortune 500 companies across Houston gave themselves raises of almost 50%.
If we want to reverse the tide of increasing childhood poverty in Houston and across Texas, we have to start with the root cause: low-wage jobs.
Join us as we call on Houston’s richest corporations to reverse the “race to the bottom” that traps families in poverty.
