Yasmin Fernandez, a bastion of the Fight for $15 movement, passed away on Friday, September 15 after she collapsed while working sick at Panda Express. She was 36 years old.
If you’ve been to a minimum wage or Opportunity to Work rally, media event, City Council meeting, our November 2016 election night event, or many other actions, you’ve seen Yasmin speak. She was front and center in winning Opportunity to Work and $15 wages locally and statewide.
