Do you want to help us fight inequality? Attend one of our rallies, events, or volunteer opportunities!
Tuesday, November 29th will be the largest nationally coordinated Day of Action against the Trump Agenda yet. The Fight for 15 and Immigrant Worker movements will organize over 300 rallies and marches across the United States.
In Rochester, the movement of low-wage workers has been coming together over the past few months. This Day of Action is being organized by fast food workers, dairy workers, taxi drivers, barbers, retail workers, home health aides, adjuncts, and workers from across multiple industries. Donald Trump will begin his time as President in the midst of the one of the largest and growing worker movements this country has ever seen.
His agenda will require resistance from Day 1. We are organizing a mass rally and march in Rochester as an important part of bringing this resistance movement together. We won't stand by for mass deportations. We won't stand by as hate groups get active. We won't stand by as worker rights come under assault.
We will fight. Join us.
Throughout the day there will be multiple actions in defense of worker rights in our city. These actions include:
- Morning Picket at McDonald's to open Nationwide Day of Disruption. Meet at McDonald's at 420 Monroe Avenue at 6am.
- Petition Drop to Support Van Thomas Workers Against Wage Theft! Meet at 740 Driving Park Ave at 1:30pm.
A panel discussion and Q&A with community leaders about the new political reality, and continued and future action.
2016 marks the 10th year since the Campaign for Fiscal Equity (CFE) school funding lawsuit created the Foundation Aid formula. Foundation Aid was designed to create an equitable school system for the black, brown and poor children across New York State. But in 2016, the Assembly was the only legislative body to propose 100 percent of Foundation Aid, while the Senate Majority proposed a measly 20 percent and Governor Cuomo proposed a pathetic 6 percent. Our children have been waiting over 10 years.
The time is now!
Join us for a bus trip to Albany to meet with local legislators and push for the money Monroe County's Public Schools are owed. We will be rallying against Trump's education agenda, and demanding an end to the structural racism of underfunded schools in black and brown communities.
The bus leaves Tuesday, Januay 10 at 6:30am from our office at 1115 East Main St. and will return the same evening. We must fight back so Trump and Governor Cuomo do not ignore communities of color and the poor.
