January 2011 starts off with definitive action on the street and in the offices of our members of Congress.

Wednesday, January 19, 2011 from 12 PM - 1 PM
Office of Rep. Lois Capps, 301 E. Carrillo St.

"Hands off Social Security" "Bring the troops home in 2011" "Move money from the Pentagon to our communities"

Join your fellow progressives at the Brown Bag Lunch Vigil near you. Remind your representative that Social Security is the cornerstone of a just and fair society. No one can afford to be without it.  Tell your representative that it is unacceptable to make our armed forces, their families, and their friends wait any longer to bring the troops home from Afghanistan. Cong. Barbara Lee will soon be re-introducing the Responsible End to the War in Afghanistan Act (HR 6045), to limit funding in Afghanistan to the safe and orderly redeployment of all troops and military contractors. Your representative needs to cosponsor this bill, and your senators need to create companion legislation in the Senate. Demand that the hundreds of billions of dollars pouring into the coffers of war profiteers be redirected where it's needed—to create jobs, save jobs, and sustain the public services we need.
