Battle for the Capitol: Tell Congress to Stop Taking #TheOtherNRA’s Corporate Cash!

April 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join National People’s Action, the National Domestic Workers Alliance and ROC United at 11:00am on Monday April 28th in Washington DC at the American History Museum on 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW.

We’ll be marching to the Capitol, with direct actions along the way, to show Congress that we’re fed up with them favoring corporations over people. 

We’re marching on this day because one of the most powerful lobbies in the country — the National Restaurant Association — will be in DC for their annual lobby day. The National Restaurant Association’s anti-worker agenda has blocked minimum wage increases, paid sick day legislation, and kept the federal tipped minimum wage at $2.13 since 1991.

We’re also taking aim at companies like GE who have been the beneficiaries of many corporate tax breaks; we’re demanding Congress side with regular people instead of corporations. JOIN US!
