"What Does the Farm Bill Have to Do With Me?"

There is a movement afoot to rename the "Farm Bill" the "Food Bill" so we can better understand that it affects every one of us - farmers and eaters alike. The food on our plates, where it came from, and how its production affects the environment are all shaped by the Farm Bill.

WE ARE ONE RALLY - Mill Creek Park - TODAY - Monday, April 4th, 2011

Monday, April 4, 2011

5:00 - 6:30p

MILL CREEK PARK

47th and Main

Kansas City, MO-

On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, where he had gone to stand with sanitation workers demanding their dream: The right to bargain collectively for a voice at work and a better life. The workers were trying to form a union with AFSCME.

Beginning with worship services over the April 1 weekend, and continuing through the week of April 4, unions, people of faith, civil and human rights activists, students and other progressive allies will host a range of community- and workplace-focused actions.

Join us in solidarity with working people in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and dozens of other states where well-funded, right-wing corporate politicians are trying to take away the rights Dr. King gave his life for: the freedom to bargain, to vote, to afford a college education and justice for all workers, immigrant and native-born. It’s a day to show movement. Teach-ins. Vigils. Faith events. A day to be creative, but clear:


We are one.
