Carmichael: End the War
We need to make sure our representatives head back to Washington with their constituents' demands for a speedy withdrawal at the forefront of their minds. That's why we're helping to organize "Take A Stand" townhall meetings and "Stand Up In September" vigils on August 28th --
National Take A Stand Day.
During the August congressional recess, Working Assets is working to turn up the heat on pro-war members of Congress while they are in their home districts. In partnership with our friends at the Americans Against Escalation in Iraq (AAEI) coalition -- including MoveOn, True Majority, and USAction -- our members across the country are displaying yard signs that say "Support The Troops * End The War," and they have been bird-dogging these pro-war congressmembers wherever they go.
In the beginning of September, Congress will return to Washington, DC and resume the Iraq debate. We want to send them a strong message before they go: bring the troops home from Iraq NOW.
Next week, Working Assets and our coalition partners will be organizing townhall meetings and thousands of vigils across the country to send this message. As our representatives and senators return to DC, we want to make sure that they remember one thing -- their constituents are counting on them to end the war.
Attend a townhall meeting or a vigil and tell Congress to take a stand against the occupation of Iraq.
September could be a critical turning point. The White House will issue its report on whether the "surge" is working, and then Congress will vote on war policy for the next year. The Bush administration will try to use the September report to convince Congress to drag out the war, so it's critical that we turn out in force to show Congress that Americans want them to end this war now.
Townhall meetings have been scheduled in the districts of pro-war congressmembers who are targets of AAEI's "Iraq Summer" campaign. Vigils will be taking place cross the country. If there is no townhall meeting or vigil already scheduled in your area, you can easily host a vigil yourself by clicking on the "host your own event" link on the signup page.
Please invite everyone you know who wants to bring our troops home to attend a townhall meeting or vigil on August 28th!
Thank you for working to build a better world.
