As part of the national “Justice for Trayvon Peoples’ Assemblies” we will gather at Beattie Park (401 N Main St) and march to the Federal Courthouse (327 S. Court St)

In these times of attacks on the rights and well-being of the people by the banks and their representatives in government, it is critical that we unite all sections of working & poor people; including women, people of color, immigrants, unions, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and the unemployed. Our strength lies in our unity!
