Incredible. As the GOP is pushing our country and the world to the brink of financial meltdown, over 20,000 people stood up to tell Congress: don't destroy the American Dream!
It's important to report back on how today went so we can let the media know. Were you able to drop by the office of your representative today?
Also, if you took photos of today's event, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As the debt ceiling fight continues, our American Dream movement needs to remain on guard to make politicians fight for—not against—the majority of us. While the GOP lobbies to place more money into the pockets of millionaires and tax-dodging CEOs, tens of millions of Americans are struggling to find decent work. The job crisis is real, but not enough of the leaders in Washington are stepping up to address it.
It's vital that our American Dream movement organize in August while Congress is home for a month-long break. That's why on August 10 we're organizing hundreds of "Where are the Jobs?" protests at congressional offices to demand a response to the jobs crisis. We know that if the super-rich and biggest corporations paid their fair share in taxes, we'd have enough revenue to keep programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security strong AND create millions of new jobs. So we'll wear our red, white and blue while bringing our jobs crisis to them.
Can you help by hosting a "Where are the jobs?" event on August 10?
Today's national mobilization was just a small piece of our collective power—now, let's turn up the heat on Congress in August!
Thanks for all you do.
