Rally to Save the American Dream

Rally to Save the American Dream

In Wisconsin and around our country, the American Dream is under fierce attack. Instead of creating jobs, Republicans are giving tax breaks to Wall Street and the very rich and then cutting funding for education, police, emergency response and vital human services. The right to organize is on the chopping block. The American Dream is slipping out of reach for more and more Americans, and we have to fight back.

The Keystone Progress Team is asking everyone to join us in taking one or more of the following actions:

Emergency Rally on the Capitol Steps in Harrisburg
There is a national call for emergency rallies in front of every state house this
Saturday at 12 Noon to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin. We demand an end to the attacks on workers' rights and public services across the country. We demand investment, to create decent jobs for the millions of people who desperately want to work. And we demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share. Click here to let us know you’re coming and to get a reminder email. Co-sponsored by Keystone Progress,, Color of Change, Democracy for America, Center for Community Change, and Progressive Majority.

Contribute $14 in honor of the 14 Democratic Wisconsin State Senators who are risking their careers to stand up for the rights of working families.
The other side has billionaires and Wall Street funding their attempts to squash working families. We don’t have Fat Cats funding us, so we need you. Please give a one-time or monthly gift of $14 to help us continue the fight here in Pennsylvania.

After decades of stagnant wages and a crushing recession, this latest assault on the American way of life is one the middle class cannot endure.

We are all Wisconsin.
We are all Americans.
This Saturday, we will stand together to save the American Dream.

In Solidarity,

Michael Morrill
Keystone Progress
