A recent study* showed what most of us already know: the opinions of average Americans have statistically ZERO impact on public policy. Our government has been corrupted by money. Politicians promise change, but end up working for the special interests and lobbyists who fund their careers. It's literally Taxation without Representation. On Saturday, April 11th, Roanoke will join 40 communities across the country in turning Tax Day into Representation Day. Join us at 11 AM for a MARCH from the corner of Market St and Church Ave through downtown to Lee Plaza, where the RALLY begins at NOON. Speakers TBA. The Noke Truck, one of over 60 Roanoke Valley businesses who have signed on to endorse the cross-partisan anti-corruption movement, will be at Lee Plaza with crepes, tacos, and tortas. Come help Roanoke build momentum for national anti-corruption reform.
Sponsored by Represent Roanoke Valley, local chapter of Represent.Us.
