The time for ACTION is NOW!
Last week, I wrote about the new website TheAction.org, a new organizing tool to help pass President Obama’s second term agenda. This weekend marks the first Day of Action using this organizing tool. The activities are designed to ensure that Congress passes a repeal of the Bush tax cuts on the wealthiest 2% of Americans while preserving the middle class tax cuts that actually help stimulate our economy by keeping money in the hands of those who will immediately put it back into the economy.
In Michigan, we have three events:
4th Congressional District
Rally outside of Congressman David Camp’s Midland office. This rally will be in support of the Middle Class, asking Dave Camp, “Who pays?” the middle class or millionaires. The address for his office is
Location:135 Ashman Street Midland, Michigan 48640, Kalamazoo Mall, Suite 180
Time: 3:00 p.m.
6th Congressional District
Rally outside of Congressman Fred Upton’s Kalamazoo office. Same theme as above.
Location: 157 S. Kalamazoo Mall Ste. 180, Kalamazoo, MI 49007.
Time: 3:00 p.m.
7th Congressional District
Congressman Tim Walberg’s Jackson Office- We will be calling Congressman Walberg’s office and leaving voicemails asking him to support ending the Bush tax cuts for Millionaires. The theme for the entire day is Middle Class vs. Millionaires and each event will reflect that. We will have a few speakers doing a short presentation but the main focus will be on taking action by calling Rep. Walberg. No experience is necessary we will have scripts and instructions ready.
Location: 800 W. Ganson St., Jackson, MI 49202
There are similar events planned all around the country. Go to TheAction.org and click on the “Events” link to find one in your area. The events are all sponsored by the Action. In Michigan, they are working with many other organizations including Working America, Michigan Citizen Action, and the Americans for Tax Fairness coalition.
