The SouthForward Super PAC is honest about the enormity of the task ahead - reclaiming the South for the Democrats - but they're hard at work anyway.  The PAC is partnering with local Democratic and social justice groups across the South to sponsor a series of town hall meetings titled:  "The Fight For Economic Justice In The South."South Forward

South Forward is pleased to announce our Fall Southern Town Hall series featuring United States Senator Bernie Sanders. Elected to the United States Senate in 2006, Senator Sanders (I-VT) has focused on the shrinking middle class and the widening income gap in America that is greater than at any time since the Great Depression. His additional priorities include reversing global warming, universal health care, fair trade policies, supporting veterans and preserving family farms. He serves on five Senate committees: Budget; Veterans; Energy; Environment; and Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. Senator Sanders chairs the Veterans’ Affairs Committee.

All meetings are free and open to the public, but they would like you to RSVP.  Register here for the Birmingham event.

The event will focus on these important issues:

  • CREATE LIVEABLE WAGE JOBS
  • STOP CUTS TO SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE AND EDUCATION
  • IMPROVE CARE AND BENEFITS FOR VETERANS
  • TACKLE THE RISING COST OF STUDENT LOAN DEBT
  • CREATE A PROGRESSIVE MOVEMENT TO CHALLENGE WALL STREET AND THE BIG MONEY INTERESTS

That's a tall order, but we have to start somewhere!

Thursday, October 17 5:30-7:30pm 

UAB Campus - Cudworth Building Auditorium - 1st Floor
1919 University Blvd
Birmingham, AL 35233
