Put People First! rally on April 8 in Olympia

Rally at the Capitol steps at noon on April 8 to demand that legislators put people first when seeking solutions to the budget crisis. 


Washington state's economy has been brought to its knees over the past several years - not by working men and women, but by Wall Street bankers who created the worst economic crisis in our country since the 1930's. Many ordinary working-class people have already paid the price in lost jobs, homes, services and hope.

People are looking for real solutions. We don't need more cuts to working families. We need legislators to recognize that public servants and middle-class workers have already made deep sacrifices to help fix the economy.

The legislature gave away $3 billion in tax breaks in the past 10 years. We need legislators to close tax loopholes and protect the safety net.

On April 8th - come to Olympia and stand in solidarity to demand that legislators protect the middle class and find real solutions to the budget deficit. 


We now know that well over 5000 labor and community people are ramping up for this rally. I hope to see your face in the crowd! 

Buses are running from Arlington, Everett, Seattle, Tukwila, Federal Way, Tacoma, Lakewood, Spokane, Richland, Sunnyside, Yakima, Vancouver and Kelso. Seats are limited, so register today.
