PSARA will premiere our new workshop “Making Retirement Security Real for Everyone” on Friday, October 30, from 10 a.m. to noon at Washington State Labor Council, 321 16th Ave. S., Seattle. Led by PSARA Education Committee Chair, Mark McDermott, the workshop will educate and inspire participants to fight for a more secure retirement for all people and generations.
Retirement security programs must be expanded to address 21st Century economic realities. We can anticipate significant resistance from those who want to shrink government programs that help the vast majority of people in our country. We need to insist that our elected representatives support this effort.
We will also be showing the new music video, Don’t Wanna Work ‘Til We Die! PSARA members are urged to attend and bring family and friends to the workshop. We want your ideas and your help in bringing this new workshop to other organizations and venues. If you have ideas, please send them to Mark McDermott at firstname.lastname@example.org
