Message from David Plouffe: "What are you doing tomorrow?"
In 1994, Congress transformed the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday into a national day of community service to further commemorate a man who lived his life in service to others. As a tribute to that legacy and the very real needs of our nation, the President-elect and Vice President-elect have launched a national organizing effort on the eve of their Inauguration to engage Americans in service.
This morning, David Plouffe sent out a message inviting supporters to help begin the work of rebuilding this country, starting in your own community:
Tomorrow, January 19th, our nation will come together in a shared spirit of community. And I wanted to make sure you know how to participate.
Monday is not only the eve of an inauguration that brings all of us so much hope, it’s also Martin Luther King Jr. Day — when we recognize the power of one man to bring about change by serving his country.
Help kick off an ongoing commitment to serve our communities by taking part in this extraordinary day of service.
The grassroots movement you helped build was always about more than an election. It’s about bringing much needed change to Washington and our communities.
Barack is calling on us to help rebuild our country. He knows what can happen when ordinary people turn their hopes into real action.
Take the first step this Monday, January 19th, by joining a service event near you. Sign up now.
Obama for America
