START A PETITION

Jul 8, 2013

Focus:Civil Rights
Action Request:Protest
Location:Kansas, United States

We need JOBS, Healthcare, Housing, Public Education & Unions not austerity! Stand Up & Fight Back!

The Koch (Wall Street) funded, Americans For Prosperity is responsible for many forms of austerity:

- Funding right-wing Kansas legislators who just passed one of the worst anti-worker anti-community budgets in Kansas history;
...
- Funding efforts across the country to attack unions;

- Funding politicians (Gov. Sam Brownback, Scott Walker, Ric Snyder & many more) and right-wing think tanks with goals of attacking public education & enacting voter suppression laws that target people of color, LGBTQ people, workers, women, immigrants, the undocumented, retirees, and youth/students;

- And funding numerous other causes/policies that benefit the rich at the expense of the poor.

Join us July 10 to oppose the anti-people agenda of the (misnamed) Americans For Prosperity.

Protests will be at the two Americans For Prosperity offices in Kansas, same time at 5 p.m.:

- SW 24th and Topeka Blvd., Topeka, KS

AND

- 151 Whittier, Wichita, KS
