Get Active! Civic-Engagement is how we change our world...

Angela Hidalgo volunteers at Rosemont School/Treatment Center, a facility that helps teenage girls who have been in trouble.  One girl there needs a mentor who can come in, visit, and provide a good example. (like a big sister) This young womann is Hispanic and would like to have a mentor who is either Hispanic or understands her culture and background. If you can take a few hours a month to help, please email Angela.  Rosemont always needs volunteers.  They have 27 girls who need role-models.  contact Angela at Angela.Hidalgo15@pcc.edu

Like President Barack Obama said yesterday to 26,000 motivated students and families in Madison, WI,
this election offers a clear choice between moving America forward and giving control back to the folks who got us into this mess.

So how can you choose to keep moving America forward? Find an event near you and RSVP today.

The time to get involved is now ... I hope we'll see you at one of these events very soon.
