From the organizers:

A shadowy network of millionaires and billionaires have rigged the system to gain even more wealth and power at the expense of working people. Those same forces, with the support of Gov. Bruce Rauner, brought a case before the Supreme Court called Janus v. AFSCME that threatens to strip Americans of our freedom to come together in strong unions and build the power in numbers we need to push back.
