SEIU Local 500 activists Pia Morrison, Gretchen Blankenship and Dolly Kildee were invited to participated in President Obama’s White House Conference on Aging.

When they followed up the Conference with lobbying visits, asking members of Congress to support reauthorization of the Older Americans Act, Pia and Gretchen ran in Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who was filming for her television show, Veep,¬†and snapped this picture of them together. Pia said that she asked the actress if she supported the Fight for 15 for Home Care Workers – and that Julia Louis-Dreyfus gave an enthusiastic, “yes!”
