Alliance for American Manufacturing staff spread "Made in America" message at assembly in Kentucky

Posted by LDonia on 06/27/2013

Field staff with the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) spent last week in Louisville, Kentucky for the 52nd Annual Unitarian Universalist General Assembly (UU).

More than 3,500 delegates from around the world attended the event.  At an AAM booth they were able to send messages to their legislators urging them to revitalize manufacturing and invest in U.S. infrastructure. AAM field staff talked about "Keep it Made in America" projects and what's being done to "level the playing field" for U.S. manufacturing.

Thank you to the UU membership for welcoming AAM into their convention and working with us to “Keep it Made in America”

It was great to Have AAM at the UU GA!!

As a board member of the UUs for a Just Economic Community (UUJEC), I was thrilled to meet Rachel and Ken at the AAM booth just two spaces away from our booth.
After visiting the AAM booth, I took a handful of AAM keychains to display in our booth, and they were gone within hours. Our UU members were clearly interested and supportive of AAM's "Make it in America" message. It was smart and strategic thinking to choose our annual meeting to deliver your message, especially at this GA where there were no workshops on economic justice. Even the UUJEC was only promoting our partnership with Move to Amend to pass a proposed 28th amendment to the Constitution that would establish that corporations are not persons and that money is not speech.
So thank you again for being there! Good luck in bringing your important work to the grassroots around the country.
