[Note: This open letter is intended to be signed by state legislators only, not advocates or the general public.]

It’s clear by now: the middle class is under a coordinated and sustained attack by the right wing in statehouses across the nation.

We have all watched as tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets in Wisconsin to stop an insidious and fast-tracked bill that would take away the right of public employees to collectively bargain -- and as a courageous group of 14 state senators stood up to deny a quorum until their constituents’ voices were heard.

Let's let Wisconsin state senators know that their colleagues across the nation stand in solidarity with them in this fight. Please take a few seconds right now to sign the open letter below, then ask your colleagues to do the same.

Let’s show the entire nation that legislators in all 50 states are truly standing up for the middle class.

Thanks!

Open Letter In Support of Wisconsin Legislators:

At a time of historic income inequality and job losses in America, conservatives have launched a destructive ideological attack targeting the rights of workers in statehouses across the nation. As state legislators, we, the undersigned, stand in solidarity with our colleagues in Wisconsin who are currently fighting this effort and ensuring that their constituents’ voices are heard.

Taking away the hard-won rights of nurses and bus drivers and teachers does nothing to create jobs, rebuild the economic prosperity of our states, or strengthen our families. 

As legislators representing vastly different constituencies in states across the country, we join together to voice our shared desire to work in a constructive manner with all relevant parties to advance a vision for our nation’s future that truly ensures the economic security of our communities.

Signed,
Optional Member Code
