Stand Up KC

Good Jobs and Affordable Housing For All

Rally and Press Conference

WEDNESDAY JUNE 14

12:00 PM

Kansas City Hall

414 E 12th St

Kansas City, MO


We need LIVING WAGE, UNION jobs and truly afforable housing in Kansas City!

***IF*** The Kansas City Royals move forward in their efforts to build a new taxpayer-funded $2 billion stadium district downtown, then it MUST come with real strings attached and a strong CBA that gives low-wage workers a seat at the table to negotiate for demands that will advance economic and racial justice. Can low-wage workers count on you to rally with them on June 14 at NOON? See you there!

JUNE IS PRIDE MONTH!

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. In the United States the last Sunday in June was initially celebrated as "Gay Pride Day," but the actual day was flexible. In major cities across the nation the "day" soon grew to encompass a month-long series of events. Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBTQ Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.

Find more information on LGBTQ Pride Month at the Library of Congress https://www.loc.gov/lgbt-pride-month/about/
