Oct 10, 2011 - Forward: NO EXCUSES. Time to get outside!
Posted On: Oct 10, 2011

October 10, 2011 - Like many of you, we received an email early today from the Secretary-Treasurer of the AFL-CIO, Liz Schuler. Liz asked us to please forward her message to our friends and ask them to get involved. Please read below, get involved, get someone else involved, and forward the message on to your friends any and every way possible. Thank you.



This week already is shaping up to be huge, with actions everywhere demanding good jobs for working families, paid for with fair taxes for millionaires and Wall Street.

Occupy Wall Street protests, which really took off over the weekend, will continue in cities from coast to coast.

And the AFL-CIO America Wants to Work national week of action starts today. This is a not-to-be-missed moment to get out and attend an event in your community.

We’re sponsoring a wide variety of activities, from vigils to teach-ins on college campuses, demonstrations outside job-outsourcing corporations and press events. In many places, we’ll join the Occupy Wall Street protests that have sprung up and are growing, from Hawaii to Washington, D.C.
 
Working people will come together in hundreds of events through Oct. 16 to demand action from Congress to promote a real jobs creation agenda and real shared sacrifice from Wall Street and the rich. Find an event near you.

And college students across the country will gather on Wednesday, Oct. 12, for a live national teach-in with events on campuses from 7–8:30 p.m. EDT. Find a teach-in location near you here. Or, watch it live Wednesday night at: http://go.aflcio.org/teachin.


Whatever you do this week, don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of something big. Here are some ways to get involved:

1. Find an America Wants to Work event near you here. To share our week of action on Facebook, click here.
 
2. Find an Oct. 12 America Wants to Work teach-in location near you here. Or watch it live from 7–8:30 p.m. here.
 
3. Find an Occupy Wall Street event near you here. You can share Occupy Wall Street events on Facebook here.

Please also forward this message to your friends and ask them to get involved. Thanks for all you do for the 99 percent.

In Solidarity,

Liz Shuler
Secretary-Treasurer, AFL-CIOcontent
