MoveOn Takes On Infrastructure

The online nonprofit MoveOn.org is taking up the banner of infrastructure investment. Under the subject line "Can your photo create jobs?" the group just sent its 5 million members an email asking them to take a picture of an infrastructure project near them that needs doing.

"It could be a bridge, a school, a road, a dam—any piece of our infrastructure in need of repair," they write.

They're asking members to print a sign like the one held by the little girl in the picture above, highlighting the jobs that could be created if the government would address the nation's infrastructure needs.

MoveOn isn't troubling itself with whether the project is "shovel-ready" or whether it's the right kind of infrastructure investment. They're keeping it simple: "Stuff is crumbling and the people who can rebuild it are unemployed. What gives?"
