Our numbers have always been larger than the side fighting against reform, but at the beginning of Congress' August recess, opponents were more visible. That is not the case any more, and we need to end August with a real display of public support so our Senators and Representatives remember what they are working for when they return to Washington.
Come to the rally and listen to our speakers who include:
* Rev. Dr. William Barber of the NC NAACPAlso, there will be a choral performance from the great folks at Fruits of Labor and a skit from Billionaires Against Health Care Reform.
* MaryBe McMillian of the AFL-CIO of NC
* Bob Jackson of the AARP
* Margarida Jorge, National Field Director for HCAN
You are not going to want to miss this event!
We need as many people as possible to come and show their support, but we also need volunteers. Click here to volunteer to gather signatures on letters or petitions to Senator Kay Hagan. We also need people to help clean up after the event. If you want to be a member of the Green Crew and make sure we leave the Capitol as nice as we found it, please click here.
