Date: Thursday, July 14, 2011
Time: 2:15 – 3:15 p.m. EST 

Click here to RSVP!

Please join us to discuss the current federal budget battle, and how grassroots organizations, community leaders, and local activists like you can collaborate to fight against irresponsible and misguided proposals.

It is crunch time. That means that members of Congress will be making hard choices as soon as this week in the federal budget debate. We must tell them not to try to fix our nation’s debt by eliminating longstanding programs that have helped low-income and working class families for decades. Instead, Congress should create a fair budget plan that protects and preserves our nation’s commitment to providing a safety net and expanding opportunity to millions of the most vulnerable communities. There is no other choice.

We look forward to your participation in this important call. Tell Rep. Van Hollen and Sen. Murray that you are counting on them to make the right choice.

Featured Speakers will include:

Representative Chris Van Hollen
D-MD, Ranking Member for House Committee on the Budget

*Senator Patty Murray
D- WA, Senate Committee on the Budget

Greg Payne
Avesta Housing/Maine Affordable Housing Coalition

Nancy Zirkin
Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights 

Please participate in this important call. Tell Rep. Van Hollen and *Senator Murray that you are counting on them to make the right choice.

Please RSVP by Wednesday, July 13 to receive instructions for participating in the call, including the toll-free number. If you need accommodations, please let us know when you RSVP. Space is limited, so RSVP as soon as possible.
