Check out this great summary of yesterday's State of OUR State rally.  The summary was put together by Community Renewal Society, one of the many wonderful members of the Responsible Budget Coalition who helped us organize this wildly successful event. We definitely made our voices heard.  Please share with your friends, family, and state policymakers.
