Elizabeth Warren將巡迴七城 籌組參選總統陣營

Warren to Make Announcement in Lawrence, Mass. to Kick off Seven-State Organizing Tour

Boston, MA - On February 9th, Elizabeth Warren will make an announcement in Lawrence, Massachusetts to kick off a seven-state organizing tour. After Lawrence, Warren will travel to Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Georgia, Nevada, and California. More details on state travel to come. Details for Lawrence are below.

At the turn of the 20th century, Lawrence and the other mill towns in Massachusetts were the backbone of America’s textile industry. Underpaid, overworked, and flat-out exploited workers from more than 50 countries gave Lawrence the nickname “Immigrant City.” In 1912, Lawrence families – especially the women of Lawrence – decided to fight back against the greedy mill owners who cut workers’ already meager salaries. On the steps of the Everett Mills – where Warren will speak next weekend – workers held the Bread and Roses Strike, one of our country’s most important labor strikes.
