We Voted for Change – And That’s What We Demand

September 13, 2010

Michiganders rally in Lansing

Two years ago, our nation came together and elected Barack Obama President of the United States. We did so in the hope that we’d get meaningful change and take back our country from the previous administration and its disastrous legacy. In these last two years, we have accomplished a lot, but there is still much more to be done. This is why on Saturday, October 2, 2010, hundreds of thousands of Americans from across the country will gather at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC to demonstrate our re-commitment to change. The One Nation March will feature human and civil rights leaders, labor leaders, environmental and peace activists, faith leaders, celebrities and sports figures – all marching together to help put America back to work and to pull America back together. As progressive talk show host Ed Schultz recently said while urging Americans to put aside their differences and come together at the Lincoln Memorial:

“Activists will gather and march to make a statement about what really matters in this country: It’s jobs, it’s economic justice… Let’s turn this country around. Support our President, support what has to be done for this country, let’s overrun the obstructionists with our passion and our vision.”
