Today thousands of people from all over the country are converging on Washington for what organizers and participants hope is an enormous rally in support of a progressive agenda. The event/coalition is called One Nation Working Together.
Supporters of this event and follow-up activities include groups such as the AFL-CIO, the NAACP, and many others, including the American Friends Service Committee. According to the One Nation website,
One Nation Working Together is a social movement of individuals and organizations committed to putting America back to work and pulling America back together. Coming from a diverse set of backgrounds, experiences, beliefs and orientations, we are determined to build a more united country with good jobs, equal justice, and quality public education for all.

Full report Monday.
