‘Demand the Change We Voted For’

Two events to note on your calendar:

September 15, 2010: Ithaca NY.  Jobs Emergency Day of Action. Join us on the Commons, Bernie Milton Pavilion, at 5:00 when the Workers’ Center’s Unemployed & Underemployed group hosts our local event tied in the Jobs With Justice‘s national effort to force the government to pass legislation like the Local Jobs for America Act. With fifteen million workers unemployed and existing jobs available for only one out of five job seekers, Congress MUST step up and take decisive action. Jobs With Justice is also demanding that Wall Street pay its fair share. A tax on financial speculation could raise $200 – 500 billion each year.

October 2, 2010: Washington DC: We Will March for Our Nation’s Future! A coalition of 170 groups — civil rights, labor, youth, faith and social justice organizations — is calling for all to come to DC to demand Put America Back to Work. Put America Back Together.It’s time for that promised change we voted for. A local bus is being organized. I’ll keep you posted on information regarding that trip.
