Putting People First in Statehouses Across the Country!

A People-Powered Legislative Kick-off:

All over the country, NPA affiliates rallied this week to set a people's agenda for their state legislative sessions.

In Minnesota, Take Action Minnesota came out in force to "Put People at the Center" of the state's budget and push for a fair budget, equitable tax restructuring and an insurance exchange that works for the people, not the corporations.

In Iowa, Iowa CCI took over the statehouse with People Power to demand that Governor Brandstead reject a corporate-powered agenda and "Put People First!"

Check out this great (and short) video of their action here:

Meanwhile, in Ohio, hundreds of folks from Mahoning Valley Organizing Collective, the AMOS Project, the Ohio Organizing Collective, and other allies all over the state gathered to strengthen the future of the state, protect workers rights, and access to healthcare chanting "money out, people in!"

In Michigan the Michigan Alliance for Immigration Rights and the Michigan Organizing Project joined with allies to "Stand on the Side of Love" and demand real immigration reform.  

2013 is already off to a powerful start and there's more to be done.

We're going to need you to take to the streets as we continue the struggle for real change.

Stay tuned.
