August 11, 2012: Workers Stand for America Rally
Aug 09, 2012
On August 11, 2012, working Americans will come to Philadelphia for the Workers Stand for America Rally to stand up for the middle class and urge all Americans, especially elected officials, to stand with us.
The event will be a central feature of a larger campaign to serve notice to political leaders and the one percent that the recovery is not reaching working people. It will take place before both parties’ conventions, and the intent is to tell both Republicans and Democrats that we want an America that works for everyone.
Through traditional and social media we will spread the message widely and ask elected officials and working people from all sectors and walks of life to sign America’s Second Bill of Rights, which we will release at the event. Equally important, we want these principles to guide working people when they vote in November and to hold elected leaders accountable once in office.
To deliver a successful event and for the bill of rights to be seriously considered, a united front by labor is essential.
