It's Time to Stand Up for DC
||Monday, April 11, 2011
||2nd and Constitution Avenue, NE
As feared, Senator Harry Reid and President Barack Obama sacrificed the rights of DC residents to get a deal on the federal budget bill.
We need to fight back before the deal is signed into law.
Demand democracy for DC by joining us this MONDAY at 5 PM outside of the Senate Hart Building, which is located at 2nd and Constitution Avenue, NE.
Pledge right now that you will take to the streets by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you tired of being treated like a second-class citizen? Mayor Vincent Gray
that this deal makes him angry.
Delegate Norton has been expressing her outrage all week.
Both of them have called on DC residents to take to the streets.
The Senate and the House are drafting language for a federal budget bill that will likely include a permanent ban on DC
spending its own local money for reproductive health care services for low-income women.
It would also impose a voucher program and may ban syringe access programs that help stop the spread of HIV-AIDS.
Let's take to the streets outside of the Senate Hart Building on Monday at 5 pm.
Tell your spouse, your brother and sister, your parents, your neighbors, everybody and anybody you know -- now is the time to stand up.
Pledge to join us right now by emailing email@example.com.
