That’s the argument put forth by the Sanctuary Restaurants movement, an initiative that advocates for discrimination-free work environments. Launched by Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC-United) and, the movement is a coalition of workers, consumers and restaurant owners pledging to take the “‘high-road’ to profitability.” They advocate for a new, higher minimum wage and equal opportunities for immigrants, refugees, people of all genders, faiths, races, abilities, and sexual orientations. Restaurants pledged to the movement prominently display a placard that declares their commitment to being anti-discriminatory.
