Solidarity: Charleston, Jan. 17

Fight for $15 folks from Atlanta took a bus to Charleston to join with organizations across the South for a mass mobilization and demonstration at the Democratic Presidential Debate. MADSA members Adam Cardo (pictured), Daniel Hanley, and Megan Harrison were among them. The group called on all candidates to focus on living wages, racial justice, and healthcare for our families. After protesting and marching outside the debate, a silent march was held outside the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, the site of the murder of the Charleston 9 by Dylan Roof. A nice surprise occurred when Senator Bernie Sanders came out and addressed the marchers.

The Bernie signal mysteriously appeared on the building where the debate was taking place.
