As some of you may know, I’ve been looking, along with some of my colleagues, for a touchstone issue that could get all the groovy people and non-profits working for social change to just agree on one thing, for once. And even tho the media is already writing Obama’s budget off as pie in the sky, why not rally around it with a straight face? It is the official Federal Budget for 2015. It is out there representing a ton of work and a giant leap forward. Why not let the budget be that touchstone we’ve been looking for? I think all the orgs and people who are on the side of the angels should come together for a change and just say: Good budget, let’s pass it. As is. So if you are in one of those orgs, please pitch this. Next generation post-occupy. Rallies. Positive not negative. People united. Clear story to sell. #passthebudget #asis #period.
