Event Date: 
Friday, September 15, 2017,
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm

Join the UM Sustainable Food Systems Initiative, actresses Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin with workers’ rights advocate and co-founder of the Restaurant Opportunities Centers (ROC) United Saru Jayaraman for a discussion on economic inequality in Michigan and nationwide.
Given their strong ties to Michigan, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are touring the state to call for higher wages and working and living conditions for working people statewide. After the speakers share their own experiences with the issue, they will share how Michiganders across the state can take action.

This event is FREE and OPEN to the Public.
