When: Wed., Dec. 18, 12-2 p.m. 2019
Virginia’s minimum wage has not been raised since 2009, meanwhile the cost of living in the state has soared and the wealth gap continues to grow. Low wages disproportionately affect marginalized communities, further exacerbating existing inequalities. On Dec 18 at 2 p.m., activists will rally at the Bell Tower to tell those in positions of power to #RaiseTheWage in Virginia. They encourage participants to attend a teach-in that will take place beforehand at 12:30 p.m. at the Main Branch of the Richmond Public Library. Information at facebook.com/events/463310024297116.
