Bernie Sanders, Senate sponsor of the Keep Our Pension Promises Act (KOPPA), will undoubtedly draw attention to the attack on working people during the debate. Activists plan to make the pension issue front and center of any media coverage.

Parking is provided in the Summerfest Parking area – 591 East Erie St. Meet at the south end of the area - shuttle buses are being provided by Teamster Local 200. Shuttle rides begin at 2:30 pm.
