Monday, June 12, 1017: Mamacitas Cafe - Marginalized Women Workers Organize!

This week on Women's Magazine, we focus on some of the most challenged workers in today's workforce:  domestic workers and young women of color. 

Young workers also face an uphill battle to find employment that not only pays a living wage, but offers a path to leadership and training.  Mamacitas Cafe is dedicated to changing those odds in Oakland, by creating well-paid jobs, with mentorship and training opportunities, for young women of color 18-24, especially women transitioning out of the criminal justice or child welfare system.

The three-year-old grassroots project started with popups and opened a brick-and-mortar cafe in 2015.  Thanks to its success, the cafe is now fundraising to lease a bigger space and expand its staff. Find them on Facebook, Twitter and the web. Help Mamacitas Cafe with their Kickstarter campaign.
