"The Working Families Party is a coalition of concerned individuals, community organizations and union members fighting for issues important to ordinary New Yorkers: quality public schools for our children, affordable health care and child care for everyone, good jobs at a living wage, campaign finance reform. We think politics should belong to all of us, not just big business and special interests. Through energizing, mobilizing, and organizing voters across the state, we help elect pro-labor, pro-community candidates to public offices and hold them accountable to the concerns of working families."
WASHINGTON - President Bush's trip to Rochester today to sell his plan to revise Social Security is generating plenty of opposition, as well as support.
Among those holding demonstrations and news conferences in the Rochester area are AARP, other retiree advocacy groups, the Democratic State Committee and Rep. Louise M. Slaughter, D-Fairport. AARP will conduct a forum opposing the privatization of Social Security. And a group known as "In This Together," an affiliate of the Working Families Party, will hold a rally in downtown Rochester.
