Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Only 10 days left to reserve most seats.  

CHICAGO JUST ADDED:  5 BUSES !!

ONWT got the Find a Bus/Ride info up and running this weekend.  Check it out:
http://www.onenationworkingtogether.org/...

First, I would check with the NAACP office in your area. I think this is your best bet.  You can find an office here.

One Nattion

You just have to put in some effort. Bus information below.

You can even put together your own bus, as long as you follow rules below:

If you know of any buses, please share the information here, too.  Thanks.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

For information about the 10.2.10 One Nation Working Together March, and to sign up to join so they can see how many are interested and were we are located see below:
One Nattion

This is mushrooming into a HUGE event.  I am still trying to get all the buses listed by State/Zip code via ONWT.  Until then, this is the best I have been able to assemble to date.

HAVE YOUR CONSIDERED putting together a bus?  You can.  If you do, you will need to register the bus with One Nation Working Together, who has acquired the RFK Stadium to park the buses.  Go to this link to register your bus for the 10.2.10 March

BUSES ARE PROVIDED BY THE FOLLOWING ORGANIZATIONS, some just for their members, some for members and their friends, and some are open.  You will have to check availability and/or find a friend who is a member of one of the unions.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

NAACP

Again, this might be the best call you can make to find a bus.  There are 2,200 NAACP offices across the country.  Go to this Link and enter you zip code to find the nearest NAACP office near you.  Contact them (leave a message if you need to).  NAACP offices are involved in this March; however, not all offices will be offering buses but they may know of one.
Check with this group:

Tikkun-Network of Spiritual Progressives
Chapters list here:  Call to see if bus seats are availabale.
http://www.spiritualprogressives.org/....

Communications Workers of America (CWA)

 

The CWA buses are full!

Union of the Unemployed,
which needs members and is becoming a national organization.  Maybe you can find a connection in your area.  You can find their contact info at the bottom right corner of thisweb jpage.  You will also find a list of their affiliates:
AFL-CIO
Find your union office contact information here.
United Federation of Teachers.  New York Borroughs.  
I recommend you call them to see if there are any seats available for you.  If you're not a member, contact information can be found here only if you live in the Boroughs.  If you are a member you can sign up for a seat here.
AFSCME
along with Coalition of Leading Civil Rights, Youth Faith, Labor and Social Justice Organizations join in this great event to Unite America Through Hope, NOT HATE!!!   Save the Date Get on the Bus to D.C. Call Rex Reid at (609) 888-5500 to reserve your seat now.

To Sign up To Ride One of the Buses:

Be sure to fill out form completely, include name, phone number and email, and any other means we can contact you, in case there is a change of bus schedule or location.
At this point there is no charge to ride any of the buses in NJ.  Go to this  Link and see if you can find a PDA group in your area.
