Thousands of public employee union members and their families will join tens of thousands of other union members, students, veterans, civil rights advocates, retirees, concerned taxpayers and community activists for an enormous rally in Trenton on May 22, as concerned residents from all corners of New Jersey descend on the State House to oppose Chris Christie’s disastrous budget priorities.
Everyone from public workers to seniors to students to veterans are going to see their taxes increased and their services diminished if Chris Christie gets his way. Everyone except the millionaires who are getting a tax cut. This rally will be a huge outpouring of those of us who will be affected if Chris Christie gets his way, and concerned citizens are going to tell the State Legislature that it’s time to stand up to his budget priorities.
AFT and the Council will be joining other public employees as well as hundreds of other community groups. We are currently in the process of renting buses for pickup locations in NJ.
Rally planners want this to be the biggest rally in New Jersey’s history. On Saturday May 22, all roads lead to Trenton.
