“Have a Heart: Tax the 1%, Cut Pentagon Pork, Save Our

Who: Tenant leaders representing millions of low income
families, elderly and disabled people who will be made homeless by proposed
federal budget cuts, and peace, labor and community allies

What: Participants will demand that Congress reject extremist proposals
to tie the debt limit to deficit reduction and instead close corporate tax

prevent any cuts to vital social programs

Chattanooga, TN; Beaumont, Dallas and San Antonio, TX; San Jose and Sacramento,
CA; Sanford, FL; Raleigh, NC; and Seattle, WA

HUD Secretary Shaun
Donovan will be testifying on HUD rental housing cuts
