Turn out for the Large Retailer Accountability Act Support

The Large Retailer Accountability Act (LRAA) is moving forward, but your council members need to hear from you to make sure it passes! Corporate lobbyists have been flooding the council (and the pages of the Washington Post) trying to stop this bill so they don't have to share their massive profits with hard working DC residents.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, June 18th at 10am, at the Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Room 500, the council will meet as the Committee of the Whole and vote to put the LRAA on the agenda for a vote at their next meeting. We need  you to be there to show the council that there is strong support from DC residents for this bill and making large retailers who can afford it pay the living wage!

Thank you for your continued to support and I hope to see many of you at the Wilson Building tomorrow.

    Though I live in Virginia, I wish I could make it to show my support as I hope to move to DC before long.... I hope it goes well.

    This is an issue I care about, but I can't take off work at 9:45 in the morning to go to this event. Are there added ways -- other ways that working people who support the LRAA can work for its passage, without getting into trouble with the boss? I don't think I'm the only one with this problem.

      Thanks Andy. I can email you something that you can use to email council members.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
