Hello all! Thank you so much for being a part of this movement! Below is the purpose of this event, the schedule, and some requests.
NYC RALLY PURPOSE: This rally is being held in solidarity with the general strike movement. Our aims are twofold. 1.) We stand with the national general strike in demanding that our representatives uphold the constitution and actively combat any language or action taken by this administration that could be interpreted as being unconstitutional. 2.) We gather here in New York in a concentrated effort to organize and further build our working community. As such, we will dedicate our time to meeting one another, learning about our industries and our backgrounds, and building an organizational network with which to carry out further, larger strikes if necessary for the betterment of our country.

1:30pm – Opening Remarks – Andrew Thornebrooke
1:45pm – Speaker 2

2:15pm – Speaker 4

4:00 – Community building and gradual disperse
6:00 – We will reconvene for the Know Your Rights Town Hall at P.S. 48, 4360 Broadway, NYC 10033.
REQUESTS: As this event is one of solidarity, and we intend to use it to organize a more effective network of strikers in New York and the rest of the country, our driving purpose is to engage with one another at this rally. Until now, this rally was organized primarily by my wife and I, which has proven a rather immense task. As such, we are asking that everyone put their shoulder to the wheel in building a worker-positive discourse and helping to organize in whatever ways they can. Thank you!
The world does not work without workers!
