Rally in Illinois for jobs on Sept. 8

As the number one issue for the American people is jobs and the economy, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that the Obama oil drilling moratorium alone will cause a loss of 23,000 jobs. That is why the American Conservative Union is partnering with the American Petroleum Institute in order to protect domestic job growth. 

With a current political environment that seeks to inhibit small business owners and decrease local energy employment, we need individuals such as you to make sure the desire for economic freedom is represented. An emphasis on increasing energy equals more jobs, higher incomes, and greater economic growth. The federal government needs to realize that millions of Americans' livelihoods depend on the oil and natural gas industry. 

Don't let Washington marginalize American energy-related jobs or consumers any longer. Stand up for economic growth and American prosperity.

Throughout September, thousands of Americans will assemble together to call upon the government to re-open the gates of American energy prosperity. You have the ability to be heard! This September 8th, stand up for American jobs and economic freedom at the "Rally for Jobs" event in Joliet, Illinois.

Doors open at 11:00 a.m.

Pipefitters Training Center 
10850 W. 187th Street
Mokena, IL 60448

We strongly encourage you to attend your local rally and represent the millions of energy industry-related jobs worth protecting! Please contact us at ACUActionDesk@conservative.org with any questions.
