SEPTEMBER 1: Workers Defense Rally for Worker Protections
Austin — The Workers Defense Project will be holding a rally for worker protections outside City Hall on September 1st, just X days before Labor Day.

Who: Workers Defense Project, construction workers, Austin families, faith and labor leaders.
What: Rally for Worker Protections
When: September 1st at 6 PM
Where: Outside Austin City Hall, 301 W 2nd St, Austin, TX 78701
