- 250,000 MoveOn members joined with Reps. Grayson, Conyers, Ellison, and Grijalva and our friends at Social Security Works and The Other 98% to call for a one-sentence bill that would put an end to the sequester—and Rep. Grayson delivered the petition signatures directly to Speaker Boehner's office yesterday, with media watching closely.1
- While Elizabeth Warren took bank regulators to the mat in Congress, 130,000 MoveOn members stood together with our allies at Campaign for a Fair Settlement to demand an end to "too big to jail" on Wall Street, and called for the Department of Justice to hold the banks that crashed the economy accountable.
- One of the best leaders on economic justice issues—the economist and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich—partnered with MoveOn to release a new video explaining why everyone should support raising the minimum wage. It's a simple policy change, proposed by President Obama in his State of the Union address, that could help make our economy work better for everyone.
Thanks for all you do.
