Take Action: Join 20,000 Protesters in Nationwide Rallies to Tell Congress, "Don't Destroy the American Dream"

With a turn-out that seeks to make the Tea Party jealous, Moveon.org, Campaign For America's Future and the Rebuild The Dream Movement are encouraging 20,000 supporters to protest on Capitol Hill against the debt ceiling "compromise." For those who can't make the trek to DC, the groups are calling for members to protest outside their local district office.

Organized by the burgeoningDream movement, the protests are an effort to galvanize the force of separate progressive organizations into a uniformed movement that rivals and counteracts the Tea Party's influence on Washington.  

From Moveon.org:

The clock is ticking and the Republicans in Congress have this nation set on a course for economic catastrophe. We are standing up today to say, you work for Americans, not for corporations and millionaires," said Justin Ruben, Executive Director of MoveOn.org. “At a time of great economic hardship any debt deal that includes deep cuts to programs that the middle class depends on, like Medicare and Social Security, and fails to ensure the rich and corporations pay their share is a bad deal, and should be rejected by all in Washington.

Gohere to find your House District Office if you can't make it to DC.
