Vigil Against Sequestration & Ryan Budget

258 Genesee Street (in front of Rep. Hanna’s Office),

Utica, NY  13502 (opposite from the Stanley Performing Arts Center)

Wednesday, 03/20/2013 – 4:30 – 6:00 p.m.

Join the March 20 National Day of Action: Repeal the Sequester and Stop the Ryan Budget. 

Central New York Citizens in Action, Citizen Action of New York, Organizing for Action, MoveOn and a coalition of community and labor groups will be holding a vigil against Sequestration Cuts & Ryan Budget in front of Representative Hanna’s Office.

We’ll put a human face on the sequester: services reduced or eliminated, workers losing their jobs, communities impacted, small businesses jeopardized.

It is important that we send Representative Hanna a message: Cancel the Cuts and Stop the Ryan Budget.

Alternate location in case of inclement weather: DeSales Neighborhood Center, 309 Genesee St., Utica (corner of Eagle Street, across the street from the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute).

What you can do to help:

Please forward this email to supporters of this action and ask your organization to serve as a co-sponsor.  

Also, you can help us find speakers to talk about the impact of the cuts (3-5 minutes long), making signs, making digital video recordings and making digital photos we can put on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter during the event, providing bullhorns or microphones battery power), making phone calls to invite organizations and persons.

Thank you for your support.
