Come Help Us Wrap City Hall in Postcards and Pack the Session Room!

The Coalition for Healthy Families and Workplaces is holding two events a week from today and we need your help to make them a success. We are working to have the Promoting Healthy Families and Workplaces Act pulled off the suspension list on Thursday, May 26th. In order to do so we need a lot of people at City Hall. Can you join us? Below is information about the two events. Feel free to come to both or just come and stay for as long as you are able to.

Ever seen City Hall wrapped in thousands of postcards? Neither have we. That's why you should join us.

WHEN: May 26th at 8:00 AM

WHERE: Philadelphia City Hall

Meet us outside the visitor’s entrance at the north-east corner of the building.

Come out and show your support as we wrap City Hall with the thousands of postcards of people like you who support passing this bill. Not to mention have fun doing something that's never been done before!

Come be part of this historic event!

Help Us Pack Council Session to Show the Full Support for Earned Sick Days 

Help us greet City Council members as they enter Session and then help us pack the Hearing Room to show the importance of this bill. You can enter City Hall at the north-east corner and remember to bring a picture ID.

WHEN: May 26, 2011* 9:00 AM
WHERE: 4th Floor, Philadelphia City Hall

*Please note, if you cannot come on May 26th or if you would like to come out to support this important bill more than once we will also be at Council Session at City Hall on June 2nd and June 9th.

Even if you have paid sick days remember a majority of restaurant, child care, and health care workers do not—the lack of paid sick days in Philadelphia impacts us all!
