Has everyone heard of One Nation, the march on October 2 that plans to bring progressive, lefty-thinking people from across the country together in one place? Well, if not, kindly carve out space in your schedule for it. And read up on the march while you’re at it.
It’s going to encompass a lot of things–a call for jobs, health care, civil rights. It’s meant to, as my girl Sadye puts it, “remind our people of the hope and change we voted for in 2008.” It’s to balance out the voices of Tea Party activists and other rightwing conservatives. It’s to re-energize the lefties, who seem to have become quite complacent as of late. (And for the last few decades, but that’s another story.)
As a preview for the event, I am co-sponsoring a party in NYC this Thursday. The details are here:
When: 6-10 p.m. Thursday, September 16
Where: Gallery Bar, 120 Orchard Street, Manhattan
Who else: Bill DeBlasio and Scott Stringer at 6:30 pm, Iron Solomon at 8 pm, NSR deejaying
See you there!
