On February 24th, thousands of working people and their allies will stand together to demand an end to the rigged economy and defend our freedoms. Wealthy special interests, backed by the Trump Administration, want the Supreme Court to rig the economy even more in their favor with a case called Janus v. AFSCME. The forces behind this case simply do not believe that working people should have the same freedoms and opportunities as they do.
For our part, people from across Virginia will travel to Washington, D.C., on February 24th to rally in support of freedom for working people, and against these attacks that result in too many Americans working harder and longer for less.
We are standing up for the freedom of working people to come together to build a strong union 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. Will you join us?
