"Tax March" on April 15

Tax March - Community Unity Rally - Voter Registration Drive
Plainfield, NJ - Union   County

Cedar Brook Park in Plainfield, NJ will be the site of the Tax March & Community Unity Rally on Plainfield.  The event will take place Saturday April 15th from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

The rally is being organized by an all volunteer, grass roots committee. The event is nonpartisan. The vision of the all volunteer, grassroots committee is to offer the residents of Union County an opportunity to come together and meet one another.  We hope to have a diverse slate of speakers and entertainment - to provide a day of education, peaceful activism and enjoyment for all.  Originally Westfield was considered as a possible location, the committee decided on Plainfield in the hopes that people will cross the suburban/urban, racial and socio-economic lines people often do not cross. 

We hope to offer a program which includes a slate of politicians and thought leaders who can speak to the importance of transparency and accountability in government, a responsible federal budget, the programs funded by our federal budget that Union County citizens rely on and other topics such as the importance of civic engagement and free press.

Scheduled speakers to date include:
Mayor Adrian Mapp of Plainfield, Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Jim Johnson, Assemblyman Jerry Green (D22), a representative from the Andrew Goodman Foundation and Gubernatorial Candidate Ray Lesniak.

Invitations to speak have been issued to all gubernatorial candidates as well as organizational leaders in the arenas of transparency in government, freedom of the press, social justice, education, healthcare and immigration.
