Know Your Value, a big conference in San Francisco with women who are leaders in media and business, has moved!
Know Your Value is about encouraging everyone, especially women, to find their voices. We decided to move our event to a new hotel in SF to respect the dialogue between management and employees at our original venue— and to have the best event possible for all participants.

Hotel workers in Boston voted to increase their dues $10 a week to donate to the Boston Marriott workers’ strike assistance fund.

Press highlights for today include:
UNITE HERE Marriott workers across the country told their stories on what it’s like when “One Job Isn’t Enough,” and why the strikes are worth it.
San Francisco Culinary Bartenders & Service Employees Welfare Fund has extended healthcare to San Francisco strikers until the end of January.
Our courage is winning the strike! San Francisco, Hawaii, and Boston mark new milestones in the strike as Marriott feels the pressure.
A housekeeper in Local 26 Providence who recently won the re-election to her City Council seat, Carmen Castillo, was the subject of a documentary about her work for our union. “Councilwoman” premiered in New York. This film shows her rise from an active member of UNITE HERE to City Councilwoman, and her fight to represent the working people in her community.
It’s happening! Our Councilwoman launch party starts now! 🎉 #CouncilwomanFilm #ReflectiveDemocracy #labor #workerrights #immigrants #workingmom #Dominican #documentary #womeninfilm pic.twitter.com/wmCb7KoGL6
