Vermont needs to stand and be heard. We urge you to join us!
Reince Preibus, RNC Chair and the widely recognized architect of the assault on workers in Wisconsin, will speak at a Vermont Republican Party fundraiser on Wednesday, April 13. The Preibus attack is another example of how our values of fairness, equality and justice are in the crosshairs of the national GOP. We are disappointed by the invitation to him for this event. We intend to send a strong message that we will not sit idle as he spreads his anti-worker, anti-middle class, anti-equality ideology to this state.
The events in Wisconsin and across the country are a wake-up call for all Vermonters that the attack on workers and their families is very real. This is a coordinated national effort to pit Americans against Americans by dismantling the rights of workers to collectively bargain for safe working conditions, a fair wage and decent benefits - all of which are necessary to create healthy communities and families. This is shameful and we will not stand for it in Vermont.
Vermonters have a long tradition of respecting the voices and rights of all people, leading the rest of the nation on women’s rights, marriage equality, universal healthcare, environmental protection, energy, etc. Lhe list goes on and on.
The United Professions AFT VT, VT NEA, Teamsters, VT Workers Center, and VSEA ask you to stand with us in protest to this socially destructive agenda. We will be meeting Wednesday, April 13th at Church & Pearl St at 5:15 PM., departing at 5:30 PM, marching down Pearl Street to the Hilton Hotel on Battery Street.
Join us in celebration of workers and the Vermont way, and in strong opposition to those who threaten us - bring your friends and family of all ages as well as musical instruments and drums!
