Rallies this week for Immigration Reform, Wall Street Reform & more!


From Greater NYC for Change:
Arizona passed an anti-immigrant law that threatens to 'undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans.'
The Citizens United decision opened the floodgates to corporate donations in political campaigns.
A tone-deaf Wall Street is resisting long overdue financial regulatory reforms.
Well, don't get mad – get organized! Come to these events this week and help us keep our country moving forward!

Wednesday, April 28th, 7:45 - 9 PM

March & Rally for Labor, Immigrant Rights & Jobs for All!

Assemble at 11 AM at Foley Square - Worth Street (between Centre & Lafayette Streets)
We are united—the employed and the unemployed, the documented and the undocumented, the organized and the unorganized, the people of diverse races and ethnicities who live and work in New York City. We are marching to demand an economic policy that supports rather than destroys the lives of the working-class majority, one that supports rather than attacks the traditional source of New York's wealth—immigrants.
RSVP here or on MyBo
