If you haven't already, please Join One Nation Working Together and help build your organization.

Please give a Shout Out to JimP for providing the Color Banners.  He has a gift!  

And thanks to the Staff of One Nation Working Together for hustling to greatly improve their website this week.  You should check it out.  They have added many new links providing much more information.  The new links are 'drop downs' from the main links.

And big thanks to barkingcat for gathering information and to Aaraujo for tenaciously posting a diary a day to keep this 10.2.10 March on Washington on the front page of Daily Kos, and to others who posted diaries to help get the word out about this exciting 10.2.10 March on Washington as well.  A team effort for sure.

Enjoy!

We have to BE the change.  We must win seats in November.

The so-called Enthusiasm Gap is about to be closed.

National organizations have come together to create One Nation Working Together.  Click on this picture to go to their website.

One Nattion

Basics

WHO?

Our People. Nuestra Gente. It is time that every community come together and demand the change that we voted for in 2008. ONE NATION WORKING TOGETHER is not just for one community, it is for all communities, it is for OUR community. We hope to galvanize those deeply affected by our struggling economy: Youth (College and Non College), Women, Faith Community, Working Class Citizens, Unionized Workers, and the Immigrant Population.

WHAT?

"ONE NATION WORKING TOGETHER is about reordering out nation's priorities to invest in our most valuable resource-our people."

We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to achieve the American Dream-a secure job, a safe home and a quality education. We want provide an opportunity for people who care about the state of our government, our jobs and our economy the chance to speak out with their voice and their bodies in Washington, DC. We want to come together and speak on behalf of the millions of people who have been affected by our economic downturn in the past few years. We will fight for meaningful, stable jobs, homes we can call our own, the opportunity for our children to obtain a quality education regardless of economic circumstances and the chance to become an American citizen and contribute to improving America. Our Dream is simple-the American Dream.

WHERE?

We are going to March on Washington on October 2, 2010 (10.2.10). Whether we come by car, bus, plane or train, we will mobilize tens of thousands of people to march in solidarity at the Nation's Capitol in order to protect our jobs, our education and our economy.

WHEN?

10.2.10 (October 2, 2010)

WHY?

We want to build a movement.

We will march because we are frustrated and unsatisfied with the status quo. We have a chance to galvanize a movement for the majority of people for justice in America. We can build a movement that both looks like America and resonates with all segments of the American family. We can build an authentically diverse coalition of our Black, Brown, Red, and White Brothers and Sisters that is rooted in our country's democratic and progressive traditions. Finally, we will reclaim American themes and traditions - a more perfect union, common good and justice for all.

We will build diverse community coalitions that represent what our neighbors and cities look like. We will phone bank, canvass, plan events, and physically outreach to the community using our relations and grassroots tactics to not only get people on the bus to Washington, D.C., but to build a movement that people can resonate with and believe in.

Sponsors

Here is a link to the  Sponsor Organization List  Feel free to contact them, ask them to post a link to the 10.2.10 Rally if they don't have one, and thank them for sponsoring this soon-to-be historic event

I can share that this is going to be HUGE.  You've probably heard that Ed Shultz will be one of the many speakers.  Good for Ed.  He walks his talk.

Transp

Also, ONWT has added a Transportation Link to their Website where you can find two tools:  Find a Bus and Find a Ride.  They are in their infant stage, but do go there and if you are willing to drive sign up, or you need a ride sign up, or you are looking for a bus.  AND, YOU CAN PUT TOGETHER A BUS and register it here, too.  The RFK Stadium has been acquired by ONWT for the day, but the buses must be registered prior to arrival.  If you go to this link and scroll down, you can read the hugely incomplete list of buses and details about them being offered and registered with ONWT.

Again, there are over 2,200 NAACP offices nationally.  You can go to this link to locate the offices in your state.  If you call them, you will find out about buses in your area.  Not all areas are offering buses.
Find an NAACP Office near you.

The  dKos 10.2.10 March on Washington: Bus diary has been hugely increased since last posted.  You can find the link here.  Find a Bus:  10.2.10 March on Washington:  Buses UPDATED

 

CWA Union Members can bring friends and family.  CWA will be sponsoring buses coming from CT, NJ, NY, PA, DE, OH, IN, MI, VA, WV, and MD.  Be creative and find a union member willing to help you get on a CWA Bus.  
You can sign up for a bus seat at this link

A Diary to help you find/share rides, sponsors, etc.

YOU WILL AVOID LONG TICKET LINES IF YOU PURCHASE A DC METRO SmarTrip Card to get from the RFK Statium to the Lincoln Memorial and avoid the lines to buy a ticket.

What Is a SmarTrip® Card?
A SmarTrip® card is a permanent, rechargeable farecard. It's plastic, like a credit card, and is embedded with a special computer chip that keeps track of the value of the card.

Using a SmarTrip® card is fast and easy. Instead of inserting a farecard through the Metrorail faregate slot, you simply touch the SmarTrip® card to the circular targets on top of or inside station faregates. Likewise, you can tap the SmarTrip® farebox on Metrobus to pay your fare with SmarTrip®.

To find information on purchasing a Washington DC Met Smart Card you can go to this  
Information link.  You will find a link to buy the SmarTrip Card on line.   If you buy the daily pass, you can save a lot of money.

Events

REALLY GOOD NEWS UPDATE:  One Nation Working Together has updated their website.  Specifically, they have added an event finder/creator.    Click on this Link where you will see where planning meetings, etc. are set up prior to 10.2.10, AND you can create your own.  You can get ONWT going in your area.

Here are a couple of tricks that will help you navigate the Events Scheduler.  

If you are interested in events in the North East, you will have to zoom in to find the details because the "orange markers" are too close together.  Also, there isn't an ability to copy/paste the events (will work on that), so if you want to share with others, you will have to forward the link to them.

You can create your own event or as a creative tool.  I used this feature to broadcast myself as a contact person in my state for people interested in getting ONWT off the ground in my area.  You can get ONWT going in your area in the same manner.

NAACP has events frequently, and you may find some that are Bus planning events here:

Find Local NAACP Office to call for event and transportation info

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from your hotlist?
Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.
Rescue this diary, and add a note:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from Rescue?
Choose where to republish this diary. The diary will be added to the queue for that group. Publish it from the queue to make it appear.

You must be a member of a group to use this feature.

Add a quick update to your diary without changing the diary itself:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary?
(The diary will be removed from the site and returned to your drafts for further editing.)
(The diary will be removed.)
Are you sure you want to save these changes to the published diary?
