OFA sequester week of action event in Carson City tomorrow



CARSON CITY – On Saturday, March 23, Organizing for Action volunteers and supporters will gather in the courtyard of Comma Coffee in Carson City to ask Congress to move forward finding a responsible and balanced approach to avoid the harsh cuts of the sequester.

Our students, teachers and first-responders should not be held back because of the inaction and unwillingness of members of Congress to create a balanced deficit reduction package. Supporters from across the area will come together and say now is the time to produce a balanced way forward avoiding the sequester cuts that could unnecessarily affect women’s health care, child care and food safety.

OFA supporters are making their voices heard that Congress needs to act now to make smarter cuts that don’t hurt our middle class and our communities. This is the agenda that Americans voted for last November and it’s time for Congress to move forward a package that helps create a stronger economy and a more secure middle class.

WHO: OFA volunteers and Nevadans committed to a balanced approach to avoid sequester setbacks, with key speakers including Chip Evans and Verita Black Prothro, co-hosts of “Get Real, America!”
WHAT: Organizing for Action Nevada – Sequester Rally at Comma Coffee
WHEN: Noon-2 p.m. on March 23
WHERE: Comma Coffee Courtyard
312 Carson Street
Carson City
