Sarita has been named one of the 19 Young Activists Changing America by Bill Moyers. Under her direction, Jobs With Justice is leading the fight for workers’ rights and an economy that benefits everyone by anchoring strategic campaigns and shaping the public discourse to build power for working people. Jobs With Justice brings together labor, community, student, and faith voices at the national and local levels to create innovative solutions to the problems workers face today. In over 45 communities in 25 states, JwJ local coalitions are organizing to address issues impacting working families. Together with McArthur Genius Award-winner Ai-jen Poo, Sarita co-founded Caring Across Generations, which is building a national movement to transform the way we give care in this country, harnessing the power of social action, social media and storytelling to spark connections across generations and to strengthen family and caregiving relationships.
