Tonight we’re welcoming friends, partners, and members to Housing Works Bookstore Cafe for our Annual Benefit. This year we’ll be celebrating a new age of work and our vision for continued building of protections for independent workers. By coming together, partnering with existing social enterprises, and building new entrepreneurial ventures, we can support this crucial community – and our country’s economic growth.
We’re especially excited to be honoring New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Loosecubes founder and CEO Campbell McKellar, and to hear from our keynote speaker, Cheryl Dorsey. Cheryl, a longtime Freelancers Union partner and the current President of Echoing Green, will speak about social entrepreneurship and mutualism – topics as dear to her as they are to us.
Extra special thanks are due to all the sponsors of this year’s benefit. Check them out after the jump, and send some good vibes their way.
