Organizing For America: Pledge Project

Organizing for America Director Mitch Stewart  announces a new initiative, the Pledge Project.

“Just over a week ago, President Obama submitted his first budget and made it clear he was ready for the fight to come.

The President isn’t alone. We’re ready for that fight too — it’s what you built this movement for.
Americans are ready for the bold new direction this plan offers. It’s what they voted for in November, and it’s needed now more than ever as we continue to face an unprecedented economic crisis.

But the special interests and old ways of Washington won’t go away easily. In fact, they’ll only fight back harder.

It’s up to you to organize support for President Obama’s plan throughout the country. It’s the only way we’ll get the change this country needs.

Take the next step now in our fight to bring change”

Here’s the plan, President Obama will rebuild and renew America by creating jobs and investing in the three areas most critical to our future:

Energy — Transforming America’s economy to run on clean and renewable energy in order to create new American jobs and industries

Health care — Comprehensively reforming health care so that families, businesses, and government are relieved from the crushing costs that impede economic growth and prosperity

Education — Reforming and investing in America’s education system so that citizens are prepared to compete in a global economy
