REMINDER: National Day of Mobilization for the Unemployed and for Jobs
Unless Congress acts now, lifeline aid for nearly 2 million workers who have lost jobs will be cut off December 31 as the extended unemployment insurance benefits expire. Not only will this have devastating impacts on already struggling families, but also on our economy, which grows by $2 for every dollar spend on unemployment insurance.
Join us tomorrow at 5 p.m. for a candlelight vigil and silent march to Federal Building to urge Congress to extend Unemployment Insurance now.

"Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. And you cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore." -- Cesar Chavez
