Social Security — A Human Chain Against Chained CPI

National Day of Action to create a HUMAN CHAIN in front of key Congressional offices and Federal Buildings. The Alliance for Retired Americans and working families will hold a “human chain against the Chained CPI” action to oppose cuts to Social Security benefits.

“On Tuesday July 2nd, the Alliance will sponsor a National Day of Action in which we elevate grassroots voices in the battle to protect and enhance retirement security. We will work together to create a HUMAN CHAIN in front of key Congressional offices and Federal buildings, as well as other strategic locations in states around the country. It is a Human Chain against the Chained CPI.” To lean more check out the Alliance’s Chained CPI Fact Sheet.

Combined Human Chain and Give Us 5 NLRB:

San Francisco, expecting over 1000 people, 4pm. “The demonstration starts at 7th St. and Mission St. (Civic Center BART) and will march to Senator Diane Feinstein’s office on Market St. (Shuttles available for those who can’t march.)

First, protestors from CARA and other groups will form a human chain around the federal building to protest the chained CPI — a Social Security benefit cut.

Then at Feinstein’s office, CWAers and our allies will deploy our placards and leaflets: No NLRB = No Worker Justice! We demand an up or down vote on the NLRB appointees!”
