Dear MoveOn member,
Are you watching what's happening in New York? What started as an occupation of Wall Street—the heart of everything that's wrong with our economy—with a small, brave group of young people is growing and spreading to every state.
And the media is finally starting to pay attention to the tens of thousands of people shouting that if we make Wall Street pay, we can have jobs instead of cuts. If we can keep the spotlight on these issues, we have a chance to force action on policies that work for the 99% of us who can't afford lobbyists.
That's why we're joining with the American Dream movement to hold actions for Jobs Not Cuts nationwide during the week of October 10-16. From protesting banks not paying their fair share, to memorials for the American Dream, to local rallies against layoffs, we'll escalate our demand for Jobs Not Cuts, which we can afford as long as Wall Street pays its fair share.
Can you help make this too big to ignore by coming to a Jobs Not Cuts event in Jamaica on Friday, Oct. 14, 2011, at 10:00 AM?
When you sign up, you can indicate if you're currently unemployed, underemployed, or have lost your home, and are willing to share your story. The human faces of the protesters occupying Wall Street, talking about how this economy has left them behind, are what's made their protests so powerful.
Now we have to stand in solidarity with them and raise our voices to demand that everyone—even the billionaires on Wall Street—pay their fair share toward rebuilding the American Dream.

Thanks for all you do.
–Daniel, Carrie, Laura, Joan, and the rest of the team
