On March 2nd stand up to keep Social Security offices open for business
Join AFGE activists and coalition allies in front of Social Security offices across the country this Wednesday, March 2, as we protest budget cuts that could furlough up to 50,000 federal and state employees and cut more than 3.500 staff.

House Republicans have proposed a $1.7 billion reduction in SSA funding for the remainder of FY 2011. If this proposal is included in any of the Continuing Resolutions (CR) for FY 2011 that Congress will soon vote on – short term or long term -- the budget cuts would lead to a month of furloughs at the Social Security Administration. And, millions of Americans filing for retirement and disability benefits will wait longer for their benefits. Backlogs could reach record levels.
In protest of these proposed cuts, thousands of Social Security workers and our coalition allies from Strengthen Social Security and the Alliance for Retired Americans will be protesting across the country to stop the assault on Social Security’s ability to serve the American public. .
Events will start at noon. Click here to find a location near you.
Thanks for all that you are doing to Fight Back!
