Budget for All Rally at Democratic State Convention

Sat June 14, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT

5,000 Democratic party activists, elected at town or ward caucuses, will gather in Worcester this Saturday to hear candidates for Governor and other offices and vote for their favorites.   Join us there: http://bit.ly/1jcnoBu

Budget for All and Massachusetts Peace Action will be there with a literature table and a petition, “Funding for Education — or Nuclear Weapons?” The delegates are very open to our message, but until we reach them, they may not realize that our politicians need to do much more to support a progressive budget.  We’ll also gather signatures for RaiseUp Massachusetts’ minimum wage and earned sick time questions.

We’ll do a standout from 8-10 am as delegates enter the hall, then leaflet and petition delegates for the rest of the day.   Standing out is free, but to enter the hall, you’ll have to buy a guest pass for $25.

ARE YOU A DELEGATE?  While you’ll mostly be sitting with your district, we’d like you to circulate RaiseUP petitions among them while you’re waiting, soplease sign up and let us know you’ll be there:   http://bit.ly/1jcnoBu

PLEASE CARPOOL – parking will be at a premium.  Contact our office at 617-354-21679 or email info@masspeaceaction.org to arrange carpools.

STANDOUT: 8-10am

TABLE and PETITIONING: 10am- (?) 4pm
