U.S. Senator and 2020 Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders will join striking workers on the picket-line at UCLA on March 20th at noon. More than 40,000 University of California employees will be on strike across UC campuses and medical centers in the largest strike of 2019. Research and Technical workers of UPTE-CWA have called the strike to challenge growing inequality and the drive to privatize at UC. UPTE Healthcare and AFSCME workers will strike in solidarity.
Picketing will begin at 7:00 a.m.

The location of the noon rally will be posted soon.
If Senator Bernie Sanders is the public servant you want as our next President, you are fielding a lot of questions and comments these days. The most common question coming my way is, "What about his age?"
Activists and former Sanders staffers, Cesar Vargas and Yesenia Mata, wrote an op-ed for The Hill addressing questions of Sanders' age. Read it here.
Bernie picture above is from Reddit user u/aledlewis. The comments in the thread are worth a minute, too.
