  • About the event

    With great excitement, La Colectiva de Mujeres invites you to our 15th Anniversary celebration and fundraiser, Quinceañera de La Colectiva – Aging with Dignity on May 24th at the stunning San Francisco War Memorial’s Green Room.

    We want to celebrate with you the victories that over 1,000 women have achieved in our women’s collective. They are personal victories of gaining economic independence, negotiating for just wages, and redefining ourselves in our work as dignified and valuable workers. And they are communal victories, of stopping deportations and home evictions, ensuring that the police in California do their job only, and not the work of immigration law enforcement, and of winning a Domestic Worker Bill of Rights in California that, for the first time, awards overtime pay to caregivers. In turn, these caregivers support patients and the elderly to live with love and dignity toward the end of
    their lives.

    In the midst of this frightening political climate, we resiliently face a future full of hope within the context of our own aging. Some of us young, and others not so much, all recognize the need to develop and discover skills for doing new types of work that will allow us to face adversity, and age with dignity.

    We ask for your support as an ally in the fight for dignified work and fair wages. Now more than ever it is important to partner in strengthening our social movements. We will very much appreciate a donation at a level within the means of your company, and we hope you can join us in celebration.

    Your brand and support will be promoted amongst the 200 attendees of this event, Bay Area political, corporate, and nonprofit leaders and professionals that feel committed to supporting our work.

    Sincerely,
