Rallies in support of public service

John Farley sends along this important announcement of statewide rallies in support of public service and in response to the attempts to limit rights of those who serve the public. Public service workers, here in Nevada and across the country, have and continue to show our willingness to sacrifice so that we can continue to serve the public.

These rallies are organized by the state AFL-CIO to tell that story. Please attend one and be sure to let those you see there that that, despite attempts to divide us, higher education faculty remain committed to our shared cause of a better educated and more prosperous Nevada.

12 Noon Monday, February 21, 2011
Front Steps of the Nevada Legislature
401 S. Carson Street
Carson City, Nevada

12 Noon Monday, February 21, 2011
Front of the Grant Sawyer Building
555 E. Washington Avenue
Las Vegas, Nevada

All week long there have been rallies, crowds spilling into the streets, seas of people marching together in solidarity – not in Egypt – in Madison, Wisconsin! The Governor has proposed draconian measures that take away workers' rights and voices. This is happening across the country.

Don’t sit home.

Stand up for yourself and for Nevada workers. Attend the rallies on Monday.
