Honor International Women's Day
by taking to the streets!

Friday, March 15th
4 PM - 6 PM

Tell Gov. Swift and the politicians:

No More Cuts! Restore the budget!
Basic Human Needs are a Right.
Housing and Healthcare, not Warfare!

Join Us! Bring your voices, signs, banners,
pots and pans, noisemakers.

We need to unite to fight the budget cuts which are
having devastating effects on the lives of women,
children and elders. Let's come together and demand:
money for food, housing, childcare, jobs, hospitals,
schools, WIC, welfare, Section 8, youth services, AIDS
funding, mental health and substance abuse treatment

We demand an end to tax cuts for the rich!
This money should be used to fund our communities.
Stop the mass layoffs of human service workers!

Sponsored by the
Women's Fightback Network

A grassroots organization of poor & working women,
immigrants, disabled activists, students, youth and
elders, lesbian, bi, & transgendered, standing up to
protest racism, war and budget cuts.
