The United Workers is a Maryland-based organization of low-wage workers leading the way to poverty's end. All events are in Baltimore, MD. For updates visit http://UnitedWorkers.org.

All-Night Vigil for Justice
Stand with the low-wage workers leading the way to poverty's end by joining the United Workers in an all-night vigil outside of Peter Angelos's downtown Baltimore office building. Workers and supporters will be airing poverty's dirty laundry, using soiled Oriole's shirts and the shirts off of workers' back to make poverty's invisible visible.

FRIDAY JUNE 23 - starts at 4:00 PM
Gather at the corner of Charles and Lexington at 4 PM for the vigil's start. We'll be taking shifts from 4 PM Friday afternoon to 9:00 AM Saturday morning. Comfortable housing is provided at the UWA office, with meals, snacks, cots and group activities throughout the vigil. Transportation between the vigil site and UWA office is provided. All are welcome and encouraged to participate - for the entire vigil or for as long as you can join us! Call 410-522-1053 for more information.

Pancakes for Justice
We'll come together for a pancake breakfast at Lovely Lane Church at the end of the all-night vigil. Join the workers who spent the night in front of Angelos's office to show your support and to learn more about poverty's struggles in Baltimore. After the pancake breakfast we will start the Freedom from Poverty March.

SATURDAY JUNE 24 - starts at 9:00 AM
The pancake breakfast is at Lovely Lane Church, which is two blocks north of North Ave. on St. Paul.

Freedom from Poverty March
Low-wage workers will lead the march from Lovely Lane Church to Peter Angelos's offices. Poverty's dirty laundry will be aired, with workers and supporters carrying a clothes line with soiled Orioles shirts and the shirts off labor's backs.

SATURDAY JUNE 24 - starts at 10:00 AM
The march follows the pancake breakfast at Lovely Lane Church, which is two blocks north of North Ave. on St. Paul.
