Rally Leaders Urge Americans To Get Involved

 WASHINGTON -- Prominent progressive leaders are speaking out about the need for Americans to come together in support of jobs, justice and public education this election season and beyond in a new series of public service announcements made available today by the One Nation Working Together coalition. Leaders are also encouraging Americans to get involved in the One Nation Working Together movement and join the March on Washington, October 2, 2010 to make their voices heard as the true American majority.

The PSAs feature NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, National Council of La Raza President and CEO Janet Murguia, USSA President Lindsay McCluskey, LCCR President Wade Henderson, Green For All CEO Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins, National Urban League President and CEO Marc Morial, International Brotherhood of Teamsters General President James P. Hoffa, SEIU President Mary Kay Henry, Former DNC Chairman Howard Dean, and Executive Director of ProgressiveCongress Darcy Burner, as well as candid testimonials from people across the nation, are available for distribution.

Excerpt from the PSAs: "One Nation Working Together is demanding one million new jobs immediately, justice and equal protections under the law for all people, and world-class public education for our children," said NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous. "To do this we need Congress and other officials to hear us, and to reinvest in people."

Excerpt from the PSA: "One Nation is about putting America back to work and pulling America back together," said SEIU President Mary Kay Henry. "It's time to unite our collective strength to lead our country back to economic prosperity and send a clear message that we will not be divided."

Excerpt from the PSA: "On Saturday October 2nd, I and thousands of other union members and leaders are marching with One Nation Working Together," said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka  "Marching along with hundreds of thousands of others – people from Main Street America, people who are coming to Washington to demand a renewed focus and investment in people. It's time to lift your voice for your family, your neighborhood, and all our futures."

Excerpt from the PSA: "The reality is, those trying to divide our nation have become louder and more destructive, that's why we must get Americans to work together for unity again," said former DNC Chairman and Former Governor of Vermont Howard Dean.  "It's going to take all of us to stand up as one nation to fight for the change that we deserve."

One Nation Working Together is an unprecedented, diverse national movement of people from all backgrounds united in a shared belief that in America today the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness mean jobs, justice and education.  Across the country, people are putting aside their differences and political agendas to denounce the tactics of hate and divisiveness. Committed to Putting America Back to Work and Pulling America Back Together, One Nation Working Together supporters will march on Washington Saturday, October 2 at noon at the Lincoln Memorial to refocus national priorities on investments in America's people.
