Protest GOP "Lame Duck" session!

Date: 
Tue, Dec 4, 2018 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

City:

ALL OUT for a protest at the State Capitol! We will be gathering at the steps of the Capitol Tuesday to raise our voices in anger against the GOP for their anti-democratic takeover of our government.

The lame duck session has taken over Earned Paid Sick Leave and the Minimum Wage ballot initiatives and gutted them. Hundreds of thousands of voters signed a petition to put these to a state wide vote; Republicans have taken this voice away from voters and gutted the legislation themselves, "in the dead of night". This is no less than a coup.
