On September 8, thousands of rallies will be held in cities and towns around the world to demand a world with clean air and energy, healthy, family sustaining-jobs, and thriving communities that work for all of us. 

The Center for Coalfield Justice and Washington County United are bringing these issues home in Washington, PA to demand our local officials take action on economic, environmental, racial, and social justice. 

Private companies and corrupt politicians have been benefiting off our community's resources and labor for too long. We can have living wage, sustainable jobs that do not treat working class families and families of color as disposable, but we need the political will to get there. If you are tired of not having access to quality jobs, education, and a healthy environment join us in the streets to demand action!

We can change the national narrative that the coalfields, small towns, and rural communities are happy with the status quo. Together we can create the change needed in our community.

We will be marching at 10am on Saturday, September 8th we will kick off the event at Farmers Market Pavilion on 139 S Main Street, Washington, PA and march through the streets, ending back the pavilion for a cookout and community gathering. 

Please register to attend the march and stand up for justice in southwestern Pennsylvania: bit.ly/18PCMWash
