Chicago, August 16: Food Is A Right People’s Assembly
$15 MINIMUM WAGE NOW!
STOP THE FOOD STAMP CUTS!
Another wave of food stamp cuts are underway, on top of federal food stamp cuts that hit millions of poor and working people twice since November. States are reinstating work requirements and ending waivers to allow less people to qualify. But there are no jobs, especially at decent pay with benefits! And most people report they already run out of SNAP benefits after two weeks. Help us build the August 16 ‘Food is a Right’ People’s Assembly in Chicago this summer to demand money for food and jobs, not wars abroad. We will hold panels and plan actions to demand…
Stop all cuts to government SNAP and food programs
Healthy food affordable for all – end food desserts
Economic justice for food, agricultural and all workers –
including the right to unionize
Hold the corporate food industry and agribusiness accountable for their environmental and health devastation in the U.S. and worldwide
LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
