Our fair booth committee has chosen the following themes for this year’s booth at the Sandusky County Fair, Aug. 19-24.
- Get Money Out of Politics: Corporations are not persons and money is not speech.
We will feature materials and petitions from Move to Amend. Move to Amend is a grassroots movement to reject the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling and other related cases, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.
- Raise the Minimum Wage
To work for a living must mean to be paid enough to live, that is, a living wage. We support raising the minimum wage to achieve a living wage.
- The Cost of War and Militarism
Every minute, the United States government spends $1.2 million on the military. What if we redirected that money to the real needs of our communities? See AFSC’s One Minute for Peace Campaign.
The committee is currently seeking donations and volunteers to make this year’s booth a success. Do stop by to see us when you visit the fair!
Congrats to People for Peace and Justice, Sandusky County for adopting such a progressive agenda. I commend your leadership!!!
