It’s Labor Day weekend. There are pretty much two things happening. Either you’re going out of town or you’ll end up at Bumbershoot. If you somehow escape these fates, a few good times await here on Capitol Hill. Add your neighborhood events to the free CHS Calendar. Oh, it’s also PAX weekend. Any weirdness you see out and about can probably be explained by that.

Seattle is among over 90 cities across the country holding a “National Rally for Change” on Labor Day, September 3, 2012, to bring awareness to the alarmingly high rates of medically unnecessary cesarean sections and labor inductions. This campaign, organized by ImprovingBirth.org, seeks to educate and empower women with evidence-based information in order to make truly informed choices regarding their maternity care. Providing high quality maternity care will not only save lives, it will save Billions of dollars annually!
