It’s HOT outside, but while many are vacationing in the sun, ADA is at work challenging the GOP talking points and protecting the middle class. Here’s what we have on the grill:
For the second consecutive month, the economy showed slow job growth. As the budget debate continues we’re fighting for the most important issue: JOBS! Spending cuts = job cuts.
That’s why ADA is partnering with The Contract for the American Dream. This is a progressive blueprint for creating an economy that works for all of us. We're looking for the best ideas to rebuild the American Dream and unite our movement. Submit your ideas and rate others – the more ideas and ratings, the better the Contract will be!
We also encourage you to take 1 minute and use our online lobbying tools to contact your Representative about H. Res. 216 -- a resolution based off of ADA’s “Corp Budget”. It would increase the funding for 3 important programs (AmeriCorps, Peace Corps and Job Corps) and would immediately create job opportunities for young people trying to start their careers in the midst of the Great Recession. Learn more & contact your Representative now!

Birddogging the Candidates
ADA’s Working Families Win (WFW) campaign’s tireless volunteers and organizers are educating the country about American Priorities for Working Families. By asking candidates tough questions and getting real answers, the American public can make the best decisions at the polls. The latest... Ron Paul on Social Security, Tim Pawlenty tells the poor not to get sick and Ultraconservative Rick Santorum skips out on jobs. Help us get Romney on the record later this week!
