Take Action Now! A Letter to Congress and the President

On Sunday, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, PolicyLink led a conversation in The New York Times Sunday Dialogue section about equity in America and how to create a nation in which everyone can participate and prosper.

Next Tuesday, President Obama will share with the U.S. Congress—and the rest of America—his plan for the future when he delivers the 2012 State of the Union address.

We must make sure that equity is a top priority in that plan. It’s time to take this conversation to the White House and Capitol Hill, and to key federal agencies.

Join PolicyLink and other equity organizations in signing on to a letter to the President and members of Congress that lays out a policy platform for the 99 percent

A final copy—with the list of organizations that sign on—will be sent to the President and members of Congress before the speech. (Deadline to sign on to the letter is Jan. 22.)

2011 will go down in history as the year that inequality was exposed; 2012 must be the year that it is addressed.

Stand with Us. Take Action. Demand Equity Now!

Thank You,
Angela Glover Blackwell
