On Saturday September 28, the Debs Foundation sponsored numerous events leading up to the Debs Award Dinner. One event was held in the Library Events Area: the Debs Award winner, Mary Kay Edwards, International President of the Service Employees International Union {SEIU}, was scheduled to speak about the “Fight for $15” movement (to raise minimum wage to $15). Unfortunately due to illness, she was unable to travel to Terre Haute. In her place, speakers from the movement presented information, a short video, and hosted a q/a session: Betty Douglas, a 61-year-old mother of three and McDonald’s employee and now activist and Neal Bisno, Executive Vice-President of the SEIU, along with Debs Foundation President Noel Beasley
