Save the Date: Working People's Day of Action

On February 24, in cities across the country, thousands of working people will unite to demand an end to an economy that's rigged in favor of the wealthiest and most powerful.

In late February, the Supreme Court will hear Janus v. AFSCME Council 31. This case is the culmination of decades of attacks on working people by corporate CEOs, the wealthiest 1%, and the politicians that do their bidding to rig the economy in their favor. The forces behind it simply do not believe that working people should have the same freedoms and opportunities as they do. 

Enough is enough. By sticking together, we can defend our freedoms and demand an end to the rigged economy. Join our Working People's Day of Action on February 24!

It's up to us to fight back. On the Working People's Day of Action, we will stand up for the freedom of working people to join together in strong unions and fight for decent and equitable pay for our work, affordable health care, quality schools, vibrant communities, and a secure future for all of us. 

As Dr. King told striking sanitation workers in Memphis fifty years ago, "Freedom is not something that is voluntarily given by the oppressor. It is something that must be demanded by the oppressed."
