Time To Rise Up! 3/19 Newsletter

It's been an interesting week here at Rise Up Kingston! If you haven't heard, Callie Jayne was charged with Trespassing in the parking lot of John Faso's office. It's a little frustrating, but it's not going to slow us down!  

First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. And then they attack you and want to burn you. And then they build monuments to you. - Nicholas Klein, Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America.


We're going to fight this fight, and fight it hard. We can't be silenced. It's time for us to Rise Up, Kingston!
