PITTSBURGH: May 26 Rally for A People's Budget and Community Day!

Save the Date!

On Sunday May 26, 2013, join us for a Rally for A People's Budget, to be followed by a Community Day BBQ at Mellen Park in East Liberty!

Year after year, Governor Corbett cuts funds from education, healthcare, environmental protection, and social services. Yet he continues to spend millions on locking people up. His proposed budget for 2013 includes a $68 million increase for the Department of Corrections; many of our lawmakers talk the talk about the need for prison reform and increased education funding, but they refuse to walk the walk.

This is why we will rally in Pittsburgh to demand A People's Budget, Not a Prison Budget, echoing the message from across the state where on May 25th the March for a People's Budget will launch from Philadelphia, to land in Harrisburg on June 3rd to demand that legislators invest in communities, not prisons.

The rally in Pittsburgh will be followed by a Community Day at Mellen Park where we will join together to celebrate and give voice to the things that we want in our communities, the things that make us safe, healthy, and secure, unlike mass incarceration. Families encouraged to come!

Also, we will be organizing transportation to Harrisburg on June 3 to join with the marchers from the east side of the state to rally on the steps of the capital to bring the message to our legislators!

Stay tuned for more details!
