After years of struggle, workers (know as Car Washeros) have secured the only three union car wash contracts in the country. This coming Thursday would have been the 105th birthday of labor and civil rights leader Luisa Moreno.

We think there is no better way to honor the legacy of Luisa Moreno than celebrating the historic victory of local Car Washeros by getting our cars washed at Vermont Car Wash during Luisa's birthday week.

We are asking everyone to get their car washed between Monday, August 27, and Thursday, August 30, at Vermont Car Wash. Vermont Car Wash has become an example of the right way to do business and of the benefits of treating workers fairly. Unfortunately, the reality is that there are still too many owners out there who abuse workers to achieve profit. We need to make sure consumers in Los Angeles know exactly where to get their car washed.
