From Egypt to Wisconsin, people have been making their voices heard demanding change. Now it’s our turn!
On March 26, thousands of people will march for our jobs and our communities in LA. We will also stand with workers in Wisconsin and in other states who are united to protect collective bargaining rights and middle class jobs.
WHEN: Saturday, March 26, 2011 at 10:00 AM
WHERE: Gather at LA Convention Center (Gilbert Lindsay Plaza) at 12th & Figueroa, Downtown L.A.
We will march through downtown LA targeting several corporate employers. Then, we will rally at Pershing Square where Mahlon Mitchell, President of the Wisconsin Fire Fighters, will address the crowd along with several dynamic speakers. Grammy award winning Latin, rock, and hip hop band, Ozomotli, will perform.
Paid Parking is available at the Venice Parking Structure at 15th/Figueroa St.
Use Metro Rail to get to/from locations because bus lines along the march will be re-routed in order to facilitate our event.
To LA Convention Center (March Start Location): The Metro Rail Blue Line stops at Flower and Pico (PICO STATION), directly across from the Los Angeles Convention Center.
