Let's keep the momentum going! Please sign up for this gathering right away!

Message from your host, Sara B.: Stand up against the Republican Budget Cuts and California state cuts!! Last night, Wisconsin Republicans rammed through their attack on workers' rights in a shameful and probably illegal power grab.

Republicans in Idaho and Ohio have already voted for similar anti-worker bills like the one i...(more)n Wisconsin. And nationally, the GOP budget would gut health care, environmental protections, housing assistance, food aid, and more. It's insane�and a direct assault on the American Dream.

We need to take our cues from the brave people in Madison and stand up to say "No More!"

We have to stand up right now and defend ourselves against attacks on the American Dream.

We have until the March 18 budget deadline to push Congress in another direction. Our previous rallies in solidarity with Wisconsin were a reminder of how powerful we are when we stand up together�and now's the time for us to rise up against a budget that takes from the middle classinstead of asking the Koch Bros. and BP to pay their fair share.

We need to stand up before the March 18th budget deadline, to give our progressive fighters in Congress a better chance to stave off cuts and pass a budget that invests in the Dream. We'll show our support for the public workers, services, and institutions making a difference in our lives�but we'll also make sure that Congress knows we'll hold them accountable for their vote. To keep the pressure on during the March 21 congressional recess, we'll deliver photos and notes from our rally to our state and federal representatives that week.
