Creativity meets workers rights at “La Historia de Rossana” a novela that recreates some of the numerous challenges that immigrant workers face in New York City’s precarious labor market: fraudulent agencies charging money for job mis-placements, abusive employers, wage theft, unsafe working conditions and gender related issues in the male-dominated construction industry. This story is performed by workers themselves, members of the New Immigrant Community Empowerment (NICE) directed by artist Gabriela Ceja with the support of organizer Maritza Ortiz. Come join us and meet these brave workers-actors representing themselves as they fight for labor justice!
