Here’s the latest from the Walmart: Respect DC! Campaign
The next meeting will be this coming Thursday, September 22, at 4pm at the Watha T Daniel/Shaw Library, 1630 7th St NW, across the street from the Shaw/Howard Metro. The meeting room is in the basement of the library. Please let me know if you will be able to attend.
We will be finalizing the details for a lobby day in early October, as well as talking about details for an exciting week of action to support OUR Walmart next week. Hope to see you there!
OUR Walmart will also be at the DC Central Labor Council meeting TONIGHT, Monday, September 19, at 6:30pm at the AFL-CIO, 815 16th St NW. You are all welcome to attend if you’d like to hear more about their campaign.
