Low-wage workers do their part to make Silicon Valley the most prosperous region in the world, yet they struggle every day to feed their families, pay their rent and take care of themselves and their children when they are sick. Silicon Valley Rising, a campaign co-led by Working Partnerships USA, is tackling these issues head-on. Come learn about their approach, including the Opportunity to Work initiative now active in San Jose.
