2. Attend the Rally to Protect the Middle Class:

Travel to Columbus and ATTEND the RALLY TO PROTECT THE MIDDLE CLASS at the State Capitol Tuesday, March 1.

Ohio/Cuyahoga County Democratic Party Bus: Call 216.621.9750 for RSVP. Two buses will leave from the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party, 1466 St. Clair Avenue, Cleveland at 7:00 am. Return to Cleveland at approximately 7:00 pm. Bring bagged lunch and wear warm comfortable clothing.

North Shore AFL-CIO Federation of Labor: Call 216.881.7200 for RSVP. Several buses will leave from North Shore AFL-CIO Federation of Labor, 3250 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland. Return to Cleveland at approximately 7:00 pm.

There are many other labor unions that will make the trip down to Columbus on Tuesday so we will find you a seat on any one of them if your first choice is not available.

Protect Ohio Families has information on upcoming activities, as well as phone banks in different cities (see about halfway down the page).

We need to keep active beyond tomorrow, and beyond SB 5. On Wednesday the North Eastern Ohio Education Association has one of its monthly Educator Lobby Days:

Educator Lobby Days provide an opportunity for members to meet with state legislators to discuss key educational issues. In an effort to broaden support for public education issues and build partnerships, OEA has invited education partners including parents, administrators, school board members, and students to join our lobby day efforts. The next OEA Educator Lobby Day will be Wednesday, March 2, 2011. All OEA lobby days begin with a briefing at 9:00 a.m. in the Media Center on the second floor of the OEA Headquarters Building, located at 225 E. Broad Street, Columbus. The briefing usually ends around 9:45 a.m.

To participate, fill out this form.

Get to Columbus if you can. If you can't do that, go to a local rally. If you can't do that, go to a phone bank. If you can't do that, send some emails. Lift a finger. Give a damn.
