“Starting August 1st, for 35 straight days, WakeUpWalMart.com is taking its national movement, and headquarters, on the road in a non-stop, cross-country tour hitting 19 states and 35 cities in 35 days. From the East Coast, to America’s heartland, to the West Coast, the “2006 Change Wal-Mart, Change America Tour” is taking to the streets to fight for a better America.

In town halls, public squares, and at state fairs, America’s most exciting grassroots movement is standing up to rich, powerful corporations like Wal-Mart and spreading the word that it is time for Wal-Mart to do what is right instead of taking America in the wrong direction.

Over the next month, WakeUpWalMart.com will be holding membership drives, community meetings, and some pretty exciting events with some of our nation’s best and most passionate political leaders like Senator John Edwards, who will be joining with us to fight for a better America.

So for the next 840 hours, 6 over-caffeinated Americans on one really big bus nicknamed Smiley are going from New York City to Seattle to fight for good jobs, more affordable health care, and a better life for all hard-working families.

But, to truly change Wal-Mart and change America for the better we need you.

The 2006 Change Wal-Mart Change America tour will be stopping in the cities listed on the left side of this page.

Click any event to RSVP. We will post the details before the event comes to your town.

Hope to see you there!” quoting the Wake-up Wal-Mart site.

In Seattle September 3
And, September 4
With Wal-Mart on the threshold of changing Yelm’s retail landscape, isn’t this is THE perfect time to become educated about this tour.

  1. Thank you for posting this! I have always felt like I needed to do something about the Wal-Mart problems, but didn’t know what to do, (besides not shop there.) I went to the website, signed up, and will for sure go to one of their stops! I also forwarded the link to friends.
    Thank you for providing this helpful information!
