The group teamed up with Latino rights group Presente to launch Sanctuary Restaurants. Establishments that designate themselves as Sanctuary Restaurants put up signs that declare their dedication to being anti-discriminatory. They also openly support workers and offer training to work place rights. The restaurants also agree to be ‘safe spaces’ for immigrants and L-G-B-T-Q workers.
According to 2016 estimates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, about a third of the restaurant and food workforce is Asian, Hispanic and Latino.
