On Monday, November 21, people from all over the City will join together at "Many Voices, One Goal: A Rally for Living Wages," to be held at the Riverside Church, 409 Riverside Drive, in Manhattan.

Join Borough President Diaz, NAACP President & CEO Benjamin Jealous and many others as they come together to support the "Fair Wages for New Yorkers" Act. The rally comes just one day before a scheduled hearing on the bill before the City Council.

The "Fair Wages for New Yorkers" Act, which was introduced into the City Council at the behest of Borough President Diaz, would require developers that receive heavy taxpayer subsidies to pay their employees a "living wage."
