Join with NOW at One Nation Working Together March
Next Saturday, Oct. 2, hundreds of thousands of activists will converge on Washington, D.C., to demonstrate a commitment to policies that put people first. NOW is partnering with 150 other national organizations for the One Nation Working Together March. The continuing economic recession, massive unemployment, countless home foreclosures and deepening poverty -- combined with political gridlock -- mean that activists must unite to deliver a loud and clear message in the nation's capital: Our elected leaders MUST invest in the people.
Your presence will help drive home that message. Please come to D.C. on Oct. 2, and join with NOW leaders marching for economic justice and equality.
Progressive activists will demand better solutions to address our national crisis -- solutions that invest in people to promote employment growth, equal pay, living wages, better schools, infrastructure re-building, aid to states and cities, environment restoration, renewable energy, Wall Street accountability, immigration reform, protection of Social Security and Medicare, enhancement of voting rights and scores of other urgent needs.
One Nation Working Together's core policy principles lay out a blueprint for re-ordering our national priorities and creating a path toward "economic and environmental sustainability for today and for generations to come."
This message couldn't come at a more important time. Right-wingers and billionaires are funding noisy Tea Party discontent and buying politicians in this election. They want to turn the clock back to the Bush years which will only worsen the divide between rich and poor. AND, they want to restore conservative policies -- the ones that got us into this economic mess in the first place!
The One Nation Working Together March will feature human and civil rights leaders, labor leaders, environmental and peace activists, faith leaders, celebrities and sports figures and promises to be an energizing and inspiring event. Details are available online. NOW activists are organizing busloads of marchers, and we hope that you will gather your feminist friends and head to D.C. Contact your local chapter to find out if they are organizing a group.
SEE YOU IN D.C.!
