Featured Speaker: 

We are excited to announce we will be featuring a screening of "A Day's Work" in the afternoon.  

“A Day’s Work” is a documentary film that examines the landmark workplace death of 21-yearold Lawrence DaQuan “Day” Davis through the eyes of his family and the analysis of experts. Day was an employee of a temporary staffing agency working at the Bacardi bottling plant in Jacksonville Florida in 2012. He was killed 90 minutes into the first day of the job - the first job of his life. The film introduces the prospective that the temporary staffing industry makes workplaces more dangerous, is used to hide the safety records of some of the biggest employers in the country, and makes the American Dream harder to reach for millions of working people. With thousands killed in preventable workplaces accidents every year in the US, the film provides a reminder of the cost of just one individual by vividly looking into the life and perspective of Day’s 17-year-old sister Antonia.
