JWJ national conference this weekend

To the chagrin of the powers that be, a zillion lefty activists will descend on RI this weekend, for the Jobs With Justice national conference.  To register, click HERE.As part of the event, there will be both a march and a rally at the state house.  The March starts at the Westin Hotel at 3:45 PM on Friday, May 2nd.  While the rally is at the State House from 5-6PM.

The weekend will include a whole slew of events — lectures, workshops on everything under the sun, parties, banquets, and open mics.

Volunteers are still needed.  If you can help, please email Pat Crowley at crowley767 at hotmail.com.
