Join a letter delivery
Dear MoveOn member,
Yesterday, tens of thousands of MoveOn members wrote letters to Congress telling them, "You're the decider. You must stop the escalation in Iraq." Can you help deliver those letters?
On Thursday, MoveOn members are gathering outside hundreds of congressional offices to keep the pressure on Congress to block the escalation. We'll be holding signs and listening to compelling speakers, and we've invited the media.
We want to make sure we have a good-sized group from your district. Can you join us at a "Congress Decides" letter delivery on Thursday around lunchtime in San Francisco?
Here are the details of the event:
Where: Phillip Burton Federal Building, 450 Golden Gate Avenue, SF (in San Francisco)
When: Thursday, Feb 22 2007, 12:00 PM
A majority of those in Congress oppose the president's plan to escalate the war. Now we have to make sure they stop him. In a few weeks Congress will have to decide how far they're willing to go to block the escalation.
They're home for recess and this is our best opportunity to influence what they do when they return to Washington. They need to know that we're not going to rest until they start bringing our troops home.
The more of us who participate on Thursday, the louder our message will be. If we keep the pressure on now, we can make sure Congress does the right thing by blocking the escalation and taking steps to bring our troops home.
Can you join us on Thursday to tell Congress, "You're the decider, you must stop the escalation?" Click below to sign up:
Rep. Jack Murtha—who's been leading the fight to stop the escalation—recently told MoveOn members, "The time to act is now...We can get this done. We can bring our troops home." (Click here to watch the video).
He's right, but it's going to take all of us together to do it.
Thanks for all you do,
