Please join us as we welcome the Franklin Delano Roosevelt caravan traveling throughout the state with a stop in Syracuse, July 20th at approximately 4:00pm. Actors playing the part of Franklin and Eleanor will address the crowd urging us to tell congress and our congresswoman to do the right thing and protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid by strengthening them. These programs have nothing to do with the economic crisis we are facing. Tax breaks for the wealthy and for the corporations over the last forty years are the cause of the problem. We are not out of money; it’s just in the hands of a few who refuse to pay their fair share of taxes.

Where: Federal Office Building, Syracuse, NY
When: July 20, 2011 at 4:00pm
