February 15 – Day of Organizing for a $15/hour Minimum Wage

Dear sisters and brothers,

Flyer for 15 Now Day of Organizing

Join me on Saturday, February 15: I will be enthusiastically adding my voice to the 15now.org Day of Organizing at 2pm at the SEIU 775 Headquarters at 215 Columbia Street, downtown.

To win a $15/hour minimum wage, we need to organize. Big business is gearing up to spend tens of millions of dollars to defeat us. We don’t have their money – we have each other – and to win – we need to organize a campaign to educate our neighbors, coworkers, classmates, parents, sons and daughters on why $15/hour now! We need to build for a big week of action in March from March 7th to March 15th. We need to build for a 20,000 person strong rally on May 1st for International Workers’ Day demanding $15/hour!

15 Now’s February 15th Day of Organizing will be a day of practical experience, of organizing neighborhood action groups and discussing the ideas and arguments for a $15/hour minimum wage. I will be speaking along with SEIU 775 President David Rolf, Green Party 2012 presidential candidate Jill Stein, SEIU 6 President Sergio Salinas, NAACP leader James Bible, and Burien City Councilmember Lauren Berkowitz, just to name a few. To top it off, the day will finish with a concert featuring RA Scion and Epiphany Jam Experience at the same venue!
