Event Description:

March for Economic Justice –  1 p.m. Saturday, March 24

Houston Coalition of Working People and the Poor has called this major march and rally to advance its 2007 agenda: raising the federal minimum wage, healthcare for all, and adequate funding of human needs programs, especially the critical entitlement programs that are up for re-authorization this year—Food Stamps and State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).

It’s important that middle-class Anglo activists stand with people of color for the issues that matter most in their lives. Plus, the struggle for new budget priorities connects peace and economic justice in the most meaningful way.

Gather at noon in Hermann Square (in front of Houston City Hall). The short march kicks off at 1 p.m., then the rally begins at 1:45 on the City Hall steps.
