All of us should have a right to full employment and a living wage, full participation in the electoral process, a voice at work, quality education and a secure, healthy future.
This Saturday, unions, community activists, and others are taking a stand to demand economic rights for all. DSA will join thousands of working families in Philadelphia who will pick up on Franklin D. Roosevelt’s call in 1944 for an economic Bill of Rights and add their names to America’s Second Bill of Rights.
If you can’t make it to Philly this weekend, you can still show your support.
The event kicks off a union sponsored campaign for a second bill of rights including:
- The Right to Full Employment and a Living Wage
- The Right to Full Participation in the Electoral Process
- The Right to a Voice at Work
- The Right to a Quality Education
- The Right to a Secure, Healthy Future
