Just a reminder that our next general meeting of Raise the Wage, Wichita is
Wednesday, August 29 @ 6:30pm
Wichita-Hutchinson Labor Federation

Also - our PUBLIC LAUNCH OF RTW WICHITA will be next Saturday, September 1 at the Labor Day rally hosted by the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers, which will include a press conference and our newly underway petition efforts. I strongly encourage you to attend, and please invite your friends! Having lots of supporters there will give our message a greater chance of being heard.
