America Votes National Day of Action (9/30)

Saturday, September 30th, America Votes - a historic coalition of the largest grassroots progressive organizations in the country - is sponsoring a National Day of Action, a day for hitting the streets and talking directly to voters about the importance of this years elections.

Democracy for America is part of this coalition and invites you to join the day of action as we work to take back the MN House!

No matter which issue concerns you most this year - the direction of our nation, the mess in Iraq, our weakening economy, skyrocketing health care costs, the state of our environment, choice, workersrights, civil rights - you can make a difference with America Votes on September 30th. America Votes unites the entire progressive movement and ensures that we all work together for our common goals.

The Minneapolis Day of Action event is scheduled from 10am-1pm. Jeff Blodgett, former Wellstone campaign manager and executive director of Wellstone Action, will be the featured speaker. Following the speeches there will be a massive phone bank at Clean Water Action. A volunteer canvass will also go to SD51A to doorknock for DFL Endorsed Candidate Scott Kranz.
