Vigils to be held in Raleigh, Greensboro, and Asheville

Ready to show public support and a moral imperative for our congressional delegation to do right by workers, veterans, students, and retirees in budget negotiations?

Then join us at 4:30 PM on Monday when working families will hold vigil outside congressional offices in Raleigh, Greensboro, and Asheville to call for an end to tax breaks for the richest 2% and, using personal stories, tell why Congress must not cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid benefits.

The “Candlelight Campaign Against Cuts” is the latest effort to make sure Congress gets the message that standing against tax fairness and for cuts to earned benefits is not only hugely unpopular but morally indefensible.
