Wow! In just two days, more than 175,000 people have joined you in signing the Contract for the American Dream.
Lots of media outlets have covered the Contract, and our full-page ad ran yesterday in The New York Times. But if we're really going to change the conversation to be about jobs, not cuts, we need to make sure lots more people know about the Contract.
We've launched a version of the Contract that makes it easy to share the whole thing, or just the planks you think are most critical, with your friends and family.
Momentum is already gathering behind the Contract. Yesterday, joined by 100 members of the American Dream movement, Rep. Jan Schakowsky unveiled her "Emergency Jobs to Restore the American Dream Act" in Chicago. It would create 2.2 million jobs by putting people to work rebuilding infrastructure, teaching our children, and protecting our communities, and pay for it by taxing millionaires and billionaires.
And hundreds of folks have planned events to take the Contract directly to members of Congress during the August recess. Deborah Curtis, a MoveOn Council leader, went to a jobs fair where Republican Rep. Ben Quayle (AZ-03) was speaking and handed him the Contract and demanded he sign it. (He didn't. Yet :-))
But we need your help to make sure as many people as possible hear about the Contract for the American Dream.
Thanks for all that you do,
–Van Jones and the rest of the Rebuild the Dream team
