I got an email this afternoon from AFSA State VP Daniel Hirsch saying that AFSA is holding a rally at the Edward J Kelly Park near the 21st Street Entrance of the State Department on Friday April 8, 2011, at noon.
The theme will be "Let Us Serve America!"
This is an opportunity to turn out and help AFSA protest Government shutdown. I plan to attend, and I hope you will come and will urge as many people as possible to attend with you.
You can also visit AFSA's Shutdown Information Center here.
The site reminds members that "Lessons learned from the shutdowns in the 1990s indicate that most problems were financial in nature. Members who do not have overdraft privileges or lines of credit with their banks may want to set them up as a precaution. Remember that if you have a mortgage that is paid automatically, you need to have sufficient funds in your account to cover your mortgage payment."
