Mass. Community Action Network Backyard Party7-8:30
631 South Street Roslindale, MA 02131
No admission fee. This is a friendraiser for MCAN - Massachusetts Communities Action Network. Cash Bar.
Most recently, MCAN played a major role in winning an increase in the minimum wage to $11 an hour, and earned sick time for all workers on the ballot last November. These two victories benefit over 1 million MA workers, and the increase in the minimum wage puts $1 billion into the pockets of low-wage workers. Grassroots leaders from many racial, socio-economic and religious backgrounds lead the organizing. The next two organizing campaigns in their drive for racial and economic justice are to reduce mass incarceration and win a “fair share” tax on millionaires.
