People's Walk continues - join them or meet them along the way

The People’s Walk to close tax loopholes to preserve the safety net kicked off Thursday in Auburn and continues through Monday when it reaches the Capitol rotunda in Olympia.

You can sign up and follow the walk online at http://washingtoncan.org/wordpress/2654/join-the-peoples-walk-for-our-future/
  • Friday’s lag started at 10 a.m. at a Bank of America branch in Tacoma and ends at 3 p.m. at Western State Hospital, flagpole in front of the main WSH Administration Building, 3 p.m., tomorrow, Friday, April 15. The hospital is located at 9601 Steilacoom Blvd. S.W. in Lakewood.
  • Saturday’s lag starts at 10 a.m. at Pierce College, 9401 Farwest Dr. S.W., Lakewood and ends and reaches a Chase Bank branch in Lacey at 5 p.m. The bank is at 8225 Martin Way E., Lacey.
  • Sunday’s stretch of the People’s Walk starts at 10 a.m. at the Wal-Mart Super Center at 1401 Galaxy Drive N.E., Lacey, and ends at 5 p.m. at Community Youth Services, 177 State Ave., Olympia.
  • Monday, April 18, the walk proceeds to the Capitol in Olympia for an inter-denominational church service on the budget, and fasting, at noon. April 18 is significant for three reasons. It’s Passover. It’s the start of Holy Week leading to Easter Sunday (and the last day of the legislative session April 24). And it’s the 10th anniversary of the start of the Federation’s statewide strike of 2001. Like the People’s Walk, let’s not forget how far we’ve come and how hard we need to fight so we never go back.
