Sat Jan 31 -Town Hall on the Economic Crisis

You are invited to a Town Hall on the Economic Crisis

First Unitarian Church, SW 12th and Main
Saturday, January 31, 1-5 pm

While almost $2.5 trillion of our money was squandered on easy term loans to banks and investment houses, we lost 2.6 million jobs in 2008! One million jobs were lost just between Nov. 1st and Dec. 31st of 2008. With a good deal more suffering likely, we are in the most difficult economic times since the Great Depression.

* What are the root causes of the economic crisis?
* What should we fight for? What is a "recovery?"
* How do the millions of people who voted for change help make it happen?

Donations welcome -- Sponsored by Jobs with Justice, the Economic Justice Action Group of the First Unitarian Church, and over 45 unions, community organizations, churches, and other groups.
