A rally to show support for workers rights is planned for downtown Bend Tuesday afternoon. Central Oregon Community College student Chris Lawler is organizing the rally to show support for public workers in Wisconsin: “Most of the people I hang around are lower or middle class. People think it’s a partisan issue. It’s not a partisan issue; it's a class issue. They’re attacking the lower and middle class. The response I’ve gotten is outrage.” Lawler invites all people who support the rights of private and public workers to have union representation to come out to Tuesday’s rally across from the Bend Public Library. The rally starts at 5:30 p.m. and should wrap up in an hour. Deschutes County Commissioner Alan Unger is slated to speak.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
