The Take Back Labor Day Festival will combine world-class music, cutting-edge activism and family fun to put working Americans’ concerns on the national agenda in a whole new way. The event will take place just across the Mississippi River from the Republican National Convention, which opens on the same day, Sept. 1.
Thousands from across the country will join together to promote a pro-worker agenda, including:
Healthcare for all
The freedom to join unions
Wages that can support families
Among many activities, festival-goers can enjoy a concert, record YouTube videos, play in the children’s area, make calls from SEIU’s Mobile Action Center, and take direct action on health care and other issues.
Yeah!! If I were only still living in Minnesota!! Yeah for Take Back Labor Day!!
