Please spread the word and please attend the rally on Tuesday, March 15 on the corners of Highway 101 and 20th (by Fred Meyer) at 4:30 or 5pm ( we have two times out in the media so some of us will be on the corner early) which MoveOn organizations around the country are putting on to support Wisconsin, workers, unions, teachers, Head Start, jobs, benefits, etc. The Congress votes again on March 18 and we need to send a strong message.
