Save Our Jobs!
APFA Rally in Washington, D.C. – September 9th

The APFA Government Affairs Department is proud of your enthusiasm to come to Washington to fight for our jobs. We must keep the pressure on Washington to pass a stimulus bill and extend the Payroll Support Program. Our jobs are on the line. Join us in Washington to deliver this message to our lawmakers, loud and clear. We will not go down without a fight.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions in the District, the event will be different from past events. Please read over this information carefully. Due to restrictions on Capitol Grounds, you must RSVP to attend this event.

Date: Wednesday, September 9th, 2020
Time: 9am-11am ET
Location: US Capitol (Demonstration Area 8) – across the street from the Russell Senate Office Building
(pending final permit approval)
