A message from Van Jones, President and Co-founder of Rebuild the Dream: Right now the American Dream is under siege. Tens of millions of willing workers can't find jobs. Millions of homeowners have lost their homes to foreclosure and millions more are underwater. Instead of investing in our shared future, politicians are giving tax breaks to the rich and then slashing vital services families depend on. Rather than expanding protections for the middle class during these difficult economic times, they're trying to gut workers' rights. But a new movement is rising all across America to fight back. It was born among the teachers, students, firefighters and nurses of Wisconsin who took over their Capitol to stop to Governor Walker's power grab. Now it's spreading as millions of other Americans -- inspired by the events in Madison, Wisconsin -- stand up to say "No" to right-wing attacks on the middle class. DFA is starting a campaign to fight back against these right wing attackers in Congress. We are going straight to them and telling them "Don't Kill the Dream" while they are at home for August recess. Join me for a telephone town hall this Thursday, August 18th at 9PM ET, to find out how you can join us to tell Republicans, "Don't Kill The Dream." Together we can rebuild the American Dream, but first we have to stop the Republicans who are trying to kill it. Thank you for all that you do. -Van Van Jones
