Joining with Business Roundtable, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) and Service Employees International Union (SEIU), AARP is hosting more than 50 events in nearly every state to educate and engage the public about issues of health reform and economic security. Divided We Fail will also present to lawmakers more than 1.6 million pledges signed by supporters from across the country.

"The last two years have been an important platform for the real work that begins today," said AARP CEO Bill Novelli. "We want Divided We Fail to be the catalyst for real health and economic reform. The president-elect and new Congress have hit the ground running this month, and we're here to help with the support of 53 million consumers, workers and entrepreneurs."

Since its formation in 2007, Divided We Fail has organized nearly 1,000 local events including 500 "Community Conversations" to inform Americans about the options to address health care and financial security and gather new ideas from the public. Volunteers in their red Divided We Fail shirts became a fixture on the campaign trail, showing their support from the first stops in Iowa to Election Day.

Today's event launches the group's 2009 mobilization and education activities, which include town hall meetings over the first Congressional recess to help constituents connect with their lawmakers and discuss how the health care and economic crises are affecting them.
