TODAY: Grab your Rain Gear and Support Wisconsin Workers at the State House Unity Rally

Friday, February 25, 2011 – New Jersey State House – At 12:00 Noon


Come rain, sleet, snow, or ice, union members, students, and community groups stand ready to fight. Today’s rally is about standing as one with Wisconsin workers and producing a showing of solidarity which resonates from the New Jersey State Capitol, across the Delaware, to the heart of the American  Midwest in Madison, Wisconsin. We need you, your friends, family, and all who believe in supporting economic justice for the middle class to be here and stand as one state, one voice, and one movement.
