Russ Feingold’s Progressive’s United, via email:
You’ve probably seen it all over the news this week: Your neighbors across Wisconsin are standing up and speaking out against the outrageous push by Governor Walker and Republican legislators – backed by big business — to strip public workers of their collective bargaining rights.
I went on the Rachel Maddow Show Wednesday night to talk about what the protests this week in Wisconsin mean for our state and our country – and how our new grassroots organization, Progressives United, is joining the fight.
Watch the video of my appearance with Rachel Maddow now — and get information about joining a Wisconsin rally in your neck of the woods:
Through Progressives United, activists from across the country are coming together to fight back against the corruptive corporate influence in politics and give regular Americans a voice in how our country is run.
Here in Wisconsin, we might never have as loud a voice as we have right now on this crucial issue, during what could be a crucial moment for our country.
Big business threw unlimited money at electing Governor Walker, who now is returning the favor by trying to advance a pro-corporate, anti-worker agenda. That flies against the hard-fought worker protections we’ve worked generations to achieve in Wisconsin, and we won’t let our work be undone.
So right now, America needs progressives like you to go out and get that message across: by rallying with our brothers and sisters in Wisconsin.
These rallies are getting huge TV coverage. You can make your voice heard. Look up the rally near you now and add your voice today.
Thank you for uniting with your fellow progressives,
P.S. Progressives are so eager to unite that our website was overwhelmed when we launched earlier this week. I can’t thank everyone enough for their support. We’re back fully online today, and I hope you’ll check out our new site, if you haven’t already.
