Join us for the Wyoming Rally to Save the American Dream on Saturday in front of the Wyoming Capitol

Attend the Wyoming Rally to Save the American Dream on Saturday, Feb. 26, noon in front of the State Capitol Building, 24th and Capitol Ave., Cheyenne. You know the building -- the "People's House" where the legislature has been cooking up a strange anti-people brew for the past seven weeks.

In Wisconsin and around our country, the American Dream is under fierce attack. Instead of creating jobs, Republicans are giving tax breaks to corporations and the very rich—and then cutting funding for education, police, emergency response, and vital human services.

On Saturday, February 26, at noon local time, the Rally to Save the American Dream is organizing rallies in front of every statehouse and in every major city to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin. We demand an end to the attacks on worker's rights and public services across the country. We demand investment, to create decent jobs for the millions of people who desperately want to work. And we demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share.

We are all Wisconsin. We are all Americans.

This Saturday, we will stand together to Save the American Dream. Be sure to wear Wisconsin Badger colors—red and white—to show your solidarity. Sign up today to join in! Go to the Facebook page at

This event is a project of Political Action and sponsored by nogoodnik progressive union community organizers such as public employees, fire fighters, teachers, police, nurses and bloggers. My mama union, SEIU, is a co-sponsor. Others are Daily Kos and Media Matters, the prog-bloggers that drive Glenn Beck up a wall. What other reason do you need to attend?
