When: Saturday, June 5th
Jeremy Bird, deputy director of Organizing for America, said of the event:
“Since President Obama took office last January, we have enacted measures that will drastically improve the lives of millions of Americans — from the Recovery Act to health reform — and we’re on the cusp of passing real Wall Street reform. As the New York Times put it, ‘Congress and the White House have completed 16 months of activity that rival any other since the New Deal in scope or ambition.’
“None of this would have been possible without your support, but we need to keep that momentum going into the fall.
We know that if we re-engage first-time voters from 2008 — folks who historically are less likely to vote again, but who strongly support the work we’re doing — then we can be successful in November. Just a small swing in their turnout could represent a shift that is big enough to affect tight races across the country.
