    Senator Kerry, Represent US!

Dear Cole,

House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan predicted
<http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=QYfdncR3SppCvPwjny7RHy65JTMXEihC>Congress'
SuperCommittee will fall short of its goal of finding $1.5 trillion in
savings.  But Ryan must be looking in the wrong places. The SuperCommittee
can reach its goal just by ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan!

Senator Kerry is on the SuperCommittee. Will he cut the most wasteful agency
in Washington – the Defense Department?   It depends on YOU!
  [image: Petitions Turned In 9-22-11]  *Peace Action members and coalition
partners turned in petitions to Sen. Kerry's staff, Sept. 22, outside
Kerry's Boston office.  They are also holding green postcards signed by
passers-by that day.*

Peace Action delivered 550 petition
<http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=I17%2BIz8Ys4Uff0dXA7eZSS65JTMXEihC>signatures
to Senator Kerry's office last week.  But that's just the beginning! This
Saturday, we will rally at his Beacon Hill
townhouse<http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=9cG7MXk5c%2FYTc%2BoWH5%2Fjci65JTMXEihC>to
make sure he hears our message.
*Can you join us at 5:30 pm this Saturday, October 1, at 19 Louisburg
Square, Boston?  *We will display a large banner, sing songs, and use visual
aids to make our point that Senator Kerry must end the wars, cut the
military budget, create jobs, restore fair taxation and defend services.

You can help get Sen. Kerry's attention even before you come down to Beacon
Hill.  *Send an online postcard to Sen.
Kerry!*<http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=g4DZ0zwemn2xsxR4J8%2FnqS65JTMXEihC>
It's
important that he hear from as many people in Massachusetts as possible this
week -- so he knows we are paying attention.

*The media reaches millions. * Writing letters to the editor is super-easy
with our online letters
tool!<http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=qHXCoJiYOcFeIZDXNleNNS65JTMXEihC>
We'll
keep the tool up to date with current talking points, so return to it
frequently.

Can you contact your town officials, gather signatures or organize
events?  Sign
up to volunteer and tell us what you can
do<http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=R%2FuMNPPnbGcSh1Cbha54A5hJeMo8G15z>
!

Together, we can get through to Senator Kerry and remind him to *Represent
US!*
