Make It Happen. Again.

President Obama said this in his inaugural address: "The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works — whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified."

Alliance of Federal, State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) has released a new video highlighting the lessons to be learned from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s response to the Great Depression. To see the video, go to “Make America Happen. It links FDR’s New Deal with President-elect Barack Obama’s calls for bold action and civic engagement in response to our present crisis.

I'm a member of the Wyoming Public Employees Association (WPEA)/Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 1990. AFSCME does some great things on behalf of government workers.
