Save the Date! August 11, 2012, union members from throughout the East Coast are gathering in Philadelphia for the Workers Stand for America Rally!
We’re uniting in solidarity to send a powerful message to Congress and anti-union forces that we are committed to fight for the working class. We are not going to rest until we have an America that works for everyone, not just the privileged few.
WHERE: Eakins Oval, Philadelphia, PA
WHEN: August 11, 2012 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm!
The program will include speakers and musical entertainment.
The event will be a central feature of a larger campaign to serve notice to political leaders and the one percent that the recovery is not reaching working people. America’s Second Bill of Rights will be presented, taking our cue from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s final inaugural address. The Bill of Rights will be the cornerstone for the rally and beyond. The principles of the Bill of Rights include the rights to:
- Full employment
- Full participation in the electoral process
- A voice at work
- A quality education
- A secure and healthy future
Join us on August 11 at Eakins Oval in Philadelphia!
