On Labor Day, Monday, September 4 from 9 am-12, activists will gather at the Thompson Center in downtown Chicago for a massive rally demanding a middle/working class agenda that includes the right to unionize, the right to a public education, fair taxation, and more. Let’s join this group in green and show the commitment of NEIU and the UPI to Chicago, to our students, and to a better country.
Below is a list of digital things to do right now for the event. Can you like the Facebook page, follow on Twitter, and/or join the Thunderclap?

As a side note, who is a social media guru who can help the UPI have a stronger digital presence? We need help there!
