Dear MoveOn member,
Will the Arab Spring be followed by an American Autumn? It’s sure starting to look that way.
Thousands of protesters are taking to the streets—in Boston and Los Angeles, at Occupy Wall Street in New York, and in dozens of other communities across the country.
What do the protesters want? A solution to the jobs crisis, corporate money out of politics, fairer tax rates, and policies that work for 99% of Americans instead of the 1% at the top.1 In short, many of the things that thousands of us came together to write into the Contract for the American Dream.2
To build on this energy, we’re organizing a huge round of speak-outs nationwide next week to deliver the simple message that we need “Jobs Not Cuts” and to “Make Wall Street Pay.” It’s part of a massive week of action to show the human impact of the economic crisis.
But we need public events in as many communities as possible to show that this is a national movement. We’ll provide everything you need to hold a successful event. Can you sign up to lead a speak-out in Chappaqua?
We’ll gather at district offices, bank buildings, and public squares to share stories and create memorials to the American Dream. We’ll demand Congress pass legislation that creates real jobs, and makes millionaires and corporations pay their fair share. And we’ll invite local media to attend so that we can amplify our message.
Wall Street isn’t the only place where greed is undermining the American Dream. By bringing these speak outs to as many communities as possible, we’ll help to spread and amplify the energy of the Occupy Wall Street protest across the country.
Can you sign up to lead a speak-out in Chappaqua?
Thanks for all you do.
–Daniel, Wes, Laura, Anna, and the rest of the team
