National AFL-CIO Executive Vice President Tefere Gebre will speak when working families mark the start of Early Voting next week with a 3:00 PM rally at Beloved Community Center, 417 Arlington Street, followed by a 4:15 PM march to the Guilford County Courthouse, 301 W Market Street.

“Dollars can’t vote no matter how much money wealthy people and corporations spend to buy our elections,” says MaryBe McMillan, Secretary-Treasurer of the NC State AFL-CIO.
“Only people can vote, and no amount of money or voter suppression will stop us from exercising our exclusive power to reclaim this state from the extremists who have put us on a path to decline.” — MaryBe McMillan
