Buffalo March for Science – Today! and lots more

50th Anniversary Year of WNYPC!

April 21, 2017

Dear Friends,
The local Tax Day March, on Saturday April 15, was a great show of solidarity on this National Day of Action! Kudos to all who came out to protest the injustice of the president’s secretive tax returns and his plans to give the rich even more tax breaks as programs for people get cut down. We will get our message through! Si, se puede!

Onward! Let’s keep the pressure on!

Today Saturday, April 22 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Begins 1pm at Soldier’s Circle, march up Lincoln Parkway, and end in a Rally and Science Festival in Delaware Park (area behind the Art Gallery and near Shakespeare in the Park).
