D.U.E. Justice Coalition Tax Day Rally for Budget Justice
Date:Tue, 04/18/2017 - 4:30pm - 5:00pm
NOTE: rescheduled from original March 1 date.
Our allies in the Democracy, Unity and Equality (D.U.E.) Justice coalition are organizing this event to demand elected officials act to close tax loopholes favoring CEOs and hedge fund managers. It is also designed to expose the harm and damage that would be caused by U.S. President Trump’s proposed federal budget.
Join AFT Connecticut and our affiliated union members and make our collective voices heard. A satirical activity will provide the opportunity for members to “play” the role of the uber-rich benefitting from regressive tax policies here in Connecticut and across the country. Signs will be provided to other participants to deliver the message that austerity budget cuts hurt working families.
Members who would like to actively participate in the satirical portion should notify our legislative advocate in advance (contact info below).
