An interfaith prayer service to raise the minimum wage

Please join us on Wednesday, June 13, for an interfaith prayer service to raise the minimum wage.

The Labor-Religion Coalition of New York State and its many allies have collected 500 faith leader and clergy signatures demanding a raise in the minimum wage this year. They will hold a prayerful service on the Million Dollar Staircase in the state Capitol and deliver the letter to Governor Andrew Cuomo's office. The group will gather at Westminster Presbyterian Church (85 Chestnut Street in Albany) at 11:15 a.m. for an 11:30 a.m. procession to the Capitol.

The prayer service will begin at noon on the Million Dollar Staircase. (From the State Street entrance, make a left. From the Washington Avenue entrance, make a right.)
