Monday, May 1st will be one of the largest protest actions for civil rights
in American history. It will also be the biggest strike in at least 30
years, as hundreds of thousands of immigrant workers and their supporters
leave their jobs to demand justice and equality.
I’m proud to report that my campaign, as well as other Green Party
candidates running together on the Million Votes for Peace slate, have been
at the center or mobilizing for May 1st in coalition with dozens of other
immigrants rights groups.
I’m convinced our support for the immigrants rights movement is the most
important thing we can be doing, but it does mean that we’ve practically
stopped raising money over the past 3 weeks as all our work as been devoted
to supporting the May 1st actions. So, I have to ask you to PLEASE go to
www.Todd4Senate.org to make an online donation today! With just 6 weeks to
go until the primary, your $250, $100 or $25 will be a tremendous help.
Now, we need you with us on May 1.
Here are 5 things you can do to assist
the May 1st actions as well as outreach for our campaigns.
