A crowd gathers in front of the Eisenhower library steps under a cloudless blue sky. Some people carry signs saying "I support my TA" or "TRU working for you" or "Grad worker". Many people are also wearing buttons. There is a photographer and two videographers. Gilman hall is visible in the background.

On September 26, TRU announced the public formation of a union of graduate students across all divisions at Johns Hopkins. Representatives from the National Nurses Union (NNU) at Hopkins, the grad union at Georgetown, and the union of security guards also spoke at the rally. A letter in support of unionization signed by over 200 graduate workers was distributed after the event.

The rally and announcement was covered by multiple news outlets including the JHU News Letter, the Real News Network, and the Baltimore Sun.

A sepia-colored poster announces a rally for grad workers with the title "Stand Up Speak Out". Three fists with different skin tones are raised up in front of a Gilman Hall tower which is faded int the background. Text running up the right side of the poster reads "Stand with us to build graduate workers' power at JHU"
