Defend the Dream rally

You are invited to join your friends and neighbors tomorrow (Tuesday, March 15) evening at 5:00 p.m. at our local Defend the Dream Rally at Courthouse Corner in Romney, at the light at Main and High.

This event is in solidarity with public sector workers in Madison, Wisconsin, and in several other states, that are being threatened with loss of collective bargaining rights. They may not have come for you yet, but these workers are fighting not just for their own rights, but for everyone’s rights and the future of unions, private and public. For you and your children and grandchildren, your siblings and friends.

These rallies are being held all over the country tomorrow evening. The rally will last for only about an hour; we will provide posters and flyers and handouts. Please join us. You can respond to this email or call me at 304-492-5185 if you will be able to come. Or just show up.

There will be “open mike” for anyone who would like to say a few words about their own experience or that of someone they know. We are looking for teachers, firemen and police, public employees, elected officials, social workers, unemployed or underemployed citizens.

Yes, this is short notice, so we need each of you to spread the word among friends and neighbors.

I look forward to seeing you there.
