Martin stated that the progressive moment must not forget the struggle for poor people, the need for reform on issues about home ownership and to continue to fight to for all people of the world to be "free at last".

Congressman Al Green will continue to fight for a living wage bill in Congress that will tie the minimum wage to the rate in inflation that would increase the rate every four years automatically. During the 112th Congress, Congressman Al Green re-introduced the Living American Wage Act, which would increase the minimum wage by 15 percent above the poverty line every four years.

Members of Local 100 and Arkansas Community Organizations (ACO) were out in front of U.S Rep Tim Griffin's office asking him to look out for the middle class and not millionaires. We also wanted Rep. Griffin to know that ending tax cuts for the rich 2% would increase revenue, and it would help states like Arkansas with medicaid and medicare. We also had a meeting with our members in Pine Bluff, along with ACO and other citizens from Pine Bluff. We wanted to inform the community about how the state wants to cut services, medicare and medicaid and long term care which will affect not only our members who work for the Department of Human Services and the people they serve. We know that our members do not want any cuts that may have an adverse impact on jobs and services.
