On Wednesday, April 30, over 3000 citizens assembled at the State House to lobby the Legislature to close the budget shortfall by raising needed revenues. More than 30 diverse organizations endorsed the rally. The weather was great and the sense of purpose was inspiring. Here are photographs taken by an MCHC photographer.
