Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) April 13, 2009
The Tax Day Tea Party (http://www.taxdayteaparty.com) is a national collaborative grassroots effort organized by groups across the country as a way citizens can rally against out of control government spending.
One of the hundreds of rallies planned for April 15th is taking place in historic downtown Trussville on the Mall, which is located just off Interstate-59 next to Trussville Middle School. The event will take place from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and will include a variety of speakers as well as free food, music and a children's area with games, face painting and a hot air balloon inflation if weather permits.
Organizers of the event said the Trussville Tax Day Tea Party (http://www.trussvilleteaparty.com) is an opportunity to send a message to elected leaders that the policies of over-taxation, government waste and run-away entitlement programs will no longer be tolerated. Organizers also said the event on April 15 is the first of many scheduled for this year to educate the public about specific actions individual citizens can take to make a difference.
All American citizens are urged to attend the Trussville event, and a special invitation has been extended to all members of the military and veterans. Donations will also be collected for the Wounded Warrior Project during the event.
Organizers are urging people to bring lawn chairs, homemade signs, and American flags to show their support.
