CWA members, and thousands of other activists from more than 200 groups, have been making plans to be in Washington, D.C., for April 16-18.
Saturday, April 16, will feature teach-ins, workshops and direct action trainings by leaders from 200 groups that have signed on to this fight.
On Sunday, April 17, activists will rally and march on the U.S. Capitol. The rally begins at 1 pm at 3rd St. NW in front of the Capitol reflecting pool. After the march, participants will hold a faith rally and prayer vigil in front of Union Station, beginning at 4:30 pm.
Monday, April 18, is a day of mass civil disobedience to save our democracy, along with advocacy and lobbying on Capitol Hill. Together we're pushing for a Congress of Conscience – one that stands up for our democracy rather than stands in its way. Many CWA activists, including President Shelton, will engage in civil disobedience and other actions that focus attention restoring our democracy.
