Thousands of Underpaid Workers to Flood State Capitols Across the Nation, Challenge Elected Officials to Support $15/HR, Union Rights, Racial Justice

Fight for $15

NATIONWIDE - Workers fighting for $15 an hour and union rights will protest alongside faith and community leaders at 28 state capitols across the country on Sept. 12, calling on politicians to support a moral policy agenda that includes living wages, union rights, and racial justice, among other issues. The protests are part of a “Higher Ground Moral Day of Action” spearheaded by the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, an architect of the Moral Mondays movement in North Carolina and founder of the social justice group Repairers of the Breach.
