Revolutionary Anti-July 4th Picnics
Sunday, July 4: Join in for good food, conversation and music
Bring others for a fun day and raise funds for "The Revolution We Need… The Leadership We Have" campaign.
If you hate everything that July 4th is celebrating, if you dream of a world without America—without everything America stands for and everything it does around the world—then you’ll want to be at one of the Revolutionary Anti-July 4th picnics taking place around the country.
This will be a day to come together, with friends old and new, for good food, conversation, music—and to raise funds for the campaign, "The Revolution We Need… The Leadership We Have."
