Socialist Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant speaks in Portland! Join the fight for a $15/hour minimum wage! The huge chasm between the richest 1% and the rest of us is widening, corporations are destroying the environment, and the U.S. government is deporting record numbers of undocumented immigrants. Clearly, the corporate politicians have failed the 99%. In response, nearly 100,000 voters recently elected Kshama Sawant to Seattle City Council as an independent Socialist, and she did not accept a dime in corporate cash! Now Sawant is leading the 15 Now movement to raise Seattle’s minimum wage to $15/hr, inspiring the movement to spread to Portland, San Francisco, and nationwide. ALSO SPEAKING: Nick Caleb, candidate for Portland City Council and Ahjamu Umi, pdx community and labor organizer. ADMISSION: $15 Suggested Donation Sawant’s election campaign relied entirely on grassroots donations. Please help retire Sawant's election campaign debt so we can move forward with the fight for a $15/hour minimum wage. Mark your calendar now - join us! Invite your friends!
