How We’re Going to Win
The television ads are meaningless now. Over the next 48 hours, it all comes down to who shows up at the polling places. ADA wants to remind you to vote (if you haven’t already), and to encourage your friends, family and neighbors to take part in this critical election. And remember, if you ever have a question or encounter a problem, call the national voter protection hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE.
Thanks to your activism and financial support, ADA and ADA's Working Families Win project have covered over 30 key communities in dozens of states. In particular, our work in Nevada, Iowa, and New Hampshire will decide whether state legislative matters are controlled by Tea Party extremists or by more rational and progressive leaders. These states also have the opportunity to elect more progressives to Congress; also these battleground states represent 16 electoral votes in the Presidential election contest. Combined that is as many or more than Virginia, North Carolina, Michigan, and Wisconsin respectively!
And we’re not going to stop after tomorrow. We are already working on the lame duck session issues. (A sneak peek at what's at stake: Bush tax-cuts, debt ceiling increase, appropriation bills, unemployment benefits extension, and more.)
Thank you again for making these efforts possible. Without you, we couldn’t do this. Once again, please help us make the most of the next 48 hours and the lame duck session by making a contribution today. Make a special ADA contribution now!

“Nuns on a Bus” Make Headlines in Iowa
Last week, ADA's Working Families Win Iowa campaign hosted "Nuns on the Bus" in Waterloo. Nearly 80 of our activist showed up, including three state elected officials, to promote faith and the values of social justice in the midst of the 2012 election. Check out the pictures from this exciting event here.
It's time to stand up for tax fairness. ADA has a number of new online action tools that you can use to take action in your community... and it takes less than a minute to do. Stand up for tax equity today!
Also, as part of an effort to ensure that two key Democrats don't buckle to corporate pressure during the "fiscal cliff" negotiations, ADA's tax fairness campaign in Delaware will hold a press conference on Monday, November 12, with Delaware State Education Association (DSEA) president Frederika Jenner and Wilmington Senior Center executive director Sue Getman. Speakers will call on Delaware's senators to back higher taxes on the wealthy as an indispensable part of any year-end deficit-reduction deal. This event is part of broader community organizing efforts around tax equity and public investment.
