From the Minneapolis Labor Review, September 27, 2019

BLAINE — The Minneapolis Regional Retiree Council, AFL-CIO will co-host a Saturday, October 19 forum addressing the future of Social Security and the steps needed to save it. The event — “Social Security: Count on it” — will run from 10:00-11:30 a.m. at the Teamsters Local 120 union hall, 9422 Ulysses St. NE, Blaine.

Panelists will include Social Security Works president Nancy Altman and other experts.

The event also will be live-streamed on Facebook.

One goal of the event will be to dispel myths about the future solvency of Social Security, said Leif Grina, MRRC president. “Our theme is ‘Social Security: Count on it,’” he said. “It’s going to be there — we need to preserve it, strengthen it, and expand it.”

“It’s an organizing event,” Grina added. “We’re going to challenge people to get involved around this issue in the 2020 elections.”
