Will Elmhurst stand with The Other 98%?

We're kicking off a massive effort to call on our elected officials to put our government back in the hands of the 98% of us who aren't represented by corporate lobbyists. MoveOn members are gathering in Elmhurst on Sunday, Jun. 27 at 6:00 PM. Can you make it?

RSVP for your local event

Dear MoveOn member,

This is what democracy looks like.

Last week, we launched an ambitious project in partnership with The Other 98%—a new online movement to make democracy work for the 98% of us who don't have corporate lobbyists in Washington.

Over the last several days, tens of thousands of folks around the country have participated in our "Stand for Democracy" process. Together, we've come up with a blueprint for fixing our democracy: a set of key steps we'll ask candidates to support to end corporate corruption in DC.

This week, the rubber hits the road: we'll launch campaigns in every community to spread the word about the democracy pledge and get our members of Congress and candidates on board for reform. In Elmhurst folks are gathering on Sunday, Jun. 27 at 6:00 PM to get the ball rolling. It's going to take all of us pushing to make this a success—can you come?

Yes, I'll be there on Sunday, Jun. 27 at 6:00 PM

No, I can't make it

Together, we're going to work to make our government accountable to the People, not BP and Goldman Sachs. Here's what we'll do at these events:
  • Kick off an effort to build local public support for our progressive reform agenda.
  • Meet neighbors who are passionate about kicking corporate influence out of politics.
  • Discuss the reform agenda that comes out of our online, member-driven process.
To get the summer campaign off to a good start, we need strong turnout of MoveOn members in the Elmhurst area who're ready to pitch in. Click here to RSVP:
