We will be in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Tuesday, September 4th, as we come together at the time of the Democratic National Convention to plan a more progressive future. We hope you can join us at a one-day forum, hosted by our friends at Community Outreach Christian Ministries, a committed community organization–only 3 miles from the convention site.

We will be discussing how we can build the äóìinside/outsideäó movement for Medicare for All, protect Social Security, end U.S. occupation in Afghanistan, stop any war with Iran before it starts, enact a äóìRobin Hood Taxäó on the Wall Street casino, fight back against out-of-control corporate power, roll back Citizens United, and save our atmosphere from global warming. We are gathering for continued, serious organizing to elect and re-elect progressive members to Congress in 2012 and beyond

We the People: Not we the Corporations – End Corporate Rule – Guided Conversation
