PARK ST. STATION RALLY TOMORROW

Boston's Rally for Women's Rights: 

Sun. 8/25/13 at 2 PM - Park St. Station


Across the country, abortion rights, voting rights and workplace protections are under attack. While Black and Brown youth are targeted and face constant persecution, racist police and the George Zimmerman's of the world roam free. Right-wing and corporate forces seek to undo the gains won by the Civil Rights movement, the movement for women's rights and every progressive movement that has changed the history of this country for the better. Women nationwide are taking the streets to defend the gains of our movements and to push for greater rights and equality for all.

 

As part of nationwide demonstrations in honor of Women's Equality Day, WORD Boston and other organizations and individuals are joining together for a rally.

THE UNFINISHED MARCH

FOR JOBS, FREEDOM, AND JUSTICE

Wed. 8/28/13 at 4:30 PM - Boston Commons

 

 

Join the Boston Workers Alliance in a mobilization in Boston on the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington. 

A coalition of neighborhood organizations, base building community organizing groups, labor unions, civil rights organizations, and faith communities will gather to mark "re-remember, re-imagine, and relive” the March for our times.

With recent developments like the tragic verdict in the Zimmerman case and the loss of the Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, we feel called to organize and mobilize to address the continued devaluing of Black bodies, and Black political and economic interests.

Equally important is our call to respect the rights and dignity of immigrants seeking their full human rights. High unemployment and underemployment of Black and Brown people remains persistent, structural and unaddressed. 

Fifty years ago the movement connected these issues with the March on Washington for Jobs & Freedom. It is time for us to look anew at the significance of the moment because of the Fierce Urgency of Now.
