From Empower DC:
Show the Council how to
BUILD THE SAFETY NET!
Wednesday, May 19, 2010
8:30 – 9:30 AM
1350 Pennsylvania Ave., NW
We’re in the final stretch of the DC budget process — and millions of dollars of funding for safety net services are at stake.
We’ve proposed that the City can save our safety net by creating new tax brackets for the highest-earning 5% of DC residents. Six Councilmembers have declared their support for progressive tax increases — but we need a seventh!
So on Wednesday, May 19th, we’re going to show City Council what a real safety net looks like. We’ll ask Councilmembers to join us in building the net that keeps our city healthy and stable.
And to do all this, we need you! Come down to the Wilson Building (1350 Pennsylvania Ave NW) to join with us in this action. The more people we have, the stronger Safety Net we can build – and the stronger our message to our councilmembers!
Can you come and help us build a strong Safety Net? RSVP here!
Please join us and tell your friends, coworkers, and fellow citizens!
