COMMUNITY TENT THIS WEEK

Metro Justice

We again welcome Metro Justice to the market this year. They will offer free tickets to the Rochester Labor Film Series, screened at the Dryden Theatre. The film that begins the series on Friday, October 11, at 7:30 p.m., The Killing Floor, recounts the true story of efforts to organize an interracial union of Chicago packing house workers during and after World War I.

Metro Justice strives to be on the forefront of important issues affecting our country and our world. The organization has opposed such issues as "redlining", corporate welfare, military spending, privatizing social security or Medicare, and unlawful housing evictions. Share your ideas with Bill McCoy, who will represent Metro Justice at the Community Table.
