Factory revival meeting features Ravens' Oher, Rice
Tackle Michael Oher and running back Ray Rice will be signing autographs at the "Keep It Made In America" meeting at M&T Stadium tonight. Other luminaries include Aris Melissaratos of Johns Hopkins, Mike Galiazzo of the Regional Manufacturing Institute, United Steelworkers 9477 President John Cirri and Severstal Sparrows President Thomas Russo.
The meeting is sponsored by the Alliance for American Manufacturing, a joint Steelworkers-industry venture that pushes U.S. policymakers to hold importing countries and industries accountable for currency manipulation, environmental despoilation, poor labor conditions and so forth. According to the press release they'll ask/answer questions such as "How do we bring good clean energy manufacturing jobs to Maryland? How can rebuild our manufacturing base? What changes do we need to [make] to tax and trade policies?"
There'll be an autograph session with Oher and Rice, "who will be signing limited edition 'Keep It Made In America' souvenir photos."
6 p.m. in the stadium's club level. Free admission. Free parking. Open to the public.
