From the BP oil spill, to continued wars & occupation in the Middle East, to bailouts for the banks but not for everyone else, the need for fundamental change has never been more urgent. Meanwhile, right-wing groups like the Tea Party are promoting virulent anti-immigrant racism and Islamophobia. Millions who organized for the Democrats in the last election are beginning to realize that, as Obama said during his campaign, “YOU are the change you’ve been waiting for.” Come to a discussion about the need to radically transform the system – and why you should be a part of organizing for that change.
