Rallygoers will call on Johns Hopkins to cancel all medical debt lawsuits filed against low-income patients, stop garnishing wages, and make sure that all patients are informed of the opportunity to qualify for free or reduced medical care at Johns Hopkins facilities.
The rally – from 2 to 3pm -- will also press Johns Hopkins to respect the right of RNs who want to unionize with the National Nurses Organizing Committee/NNU.

In today’s labor history, on this date in 1848, the Women's Rights Convention opened in Seneca Falls, New York. Delegates adopted a Declaration of Women's Rights and called for women's suffrage.
Today’s labor quote is from the 1848 Declaration of Women's Rights:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men and women are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
