One Nation, Working Together

Live video coverage of the OneNation march in Washington, D.C.

 

OneAmericaTwo years into the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression—and one month before this fall's midterm elections—tens of thousands of people will gather on the National Mall to let their leaders know that they're ready for economic change. According to the mission statement posted on the OneNation website, "We march for an economy that works for all. We march for a nation in which each person who wants to work can find a job that pays enough to support a family."

A diverse network of organizations—ranging from unions to climate advocacy groups, think tanks to anti-war organizations—are demanding that legislators break through partisan gridlock to find sustainable, inclusive ways to rebuild the economy. Among their policy demands are funding for green jobs, public education, and housing; extensions of assistance for the unemployed; paid sick days and paid family leave; and the reformation of bankruptcy laws.
