Rally for Jobs & Peace at Sen. Kerry's Office

When: Tuesday, August 30, 2011, 1:00 pm
Where: Downstairs from Sen. John Kerry's office • One Bowdoin Square • Bowdoin or Government Center T • Boston

With Congress at home for August recess, it's time to turn the focus to jobs and peace, not cuts.  Senator Kerry needs to know that we want him to focus on restoring the economy by creating jobs and ending the wars, not making more cuts to vital programs. Progressives nationwide have already had an impact early on during the recess—now it's up to us to keep after Senator Kerry!
