Did you know that 1 in 5 people in San Antonio lives in poverty?
Even worse, 1 in 3 children is growing up in poverty in San Antonio. Many families are working very hard and still not earning enough to make ends meet. In response, leaders from C.O.P.S. and the Metro Alliance have launched a campaign to raise wages for many of the lowest paid workers in San Antonio.
Want to learn more about wages? The City budget? Other economic pressures on our families? Attend a civic academy at an institution near you. View a list of civic academies on Living Wages and Economic Security.
In order to build a strong base of support, C.O.P.S. and the Metro Alliance will have a Fall Assembly for leaders and allies. Share our Fall Assembly flyer for November 16, 2014, 4 PM at Sacred Heart Church Civic Center, 2123 W. Commerce St.
