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!
