On Friday, July 22, more than 200 grocery workers, community members,
elected officials and staffers packed the El Monte Community Center to
to address and assess how another Southern California grocery strike
could impact the local economy and community of the San Gabriel Valley.
Local residents were exposed to several perspectives from the panel,
including area elected officials, a food bank representative, union
leaders, and grocery workers.
