The project is rank-and-file driven and it’s not being funded or organized by any national union or federation. That means we need your support to get across the country. Tour participants are taking vacation time or unpaid leave to join the tour and making significant personal financial contributions to the tour. Our local unions are also contributing to help defray the costs. But we’re projecting that funding travel and promotional expenses while moving on a tight schedule between cities will cost $20,000. If we’re going to make it across the country, we need your support.
