Part 1 of a Three Part Story – Remembering the Victims of 911
On September 11, 2001, ten years ago today, terrorists committed one of the most horrific attacks we have ever seen on American soil. In a matter of hours, thousands of Americans, including all walks of life from active duty military and emergency responders, and from laborers to businessmen and professionals, lost their lives.
PARTY BUILDING CONFERENCE
I want YOU to join us in a nation-wide event the weekend of October 21st at the Merrell Institute on Long Island, New York!
The event will be two and a half days of learning how YOU can stop the bipolar left-right gridlock that has gripped our nation, learning about current issues, getting to know your fellow Reformers and learning how to participate and be effective. This event is open to ALL REFORMERS and centrists from across the country including individuals who are not party members.
The first Labor Day in the United States was observed on September 5, 1882, by the Central Labor Union of New York.
Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894, following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike.
President Grover Cleveland put reconciliation with the labor movement as a top political priority. Fearing further conflict, legislation making Labor Day a national holiday was rushed through Congress unanimously and signed into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.
