The Occupy Wall Street movement has put economic justice in the spotlight. The whole country is talking about how we can end the big banks' excessive influence and Make Wall Street Pay to rebuild the economy for everyone.1
That's why, next week in Westbury, there's a meeting for folks to come together to plan ways to Make Wall Street Pay in our own communities. We'll focus on specific targeted campaigns that hold the big banks accountable.
The meeting is on Saturday, Oct. 22, 2011, at 2:00 PM in Westbury. Can you attend?
How is this connected to Occupy Wall Street? Our goal is to launch targeted local campaigns to complement the amazing work being done by brave Occupy Wall Street protesters—something MoveOn members around the country have been asking for. And we'll continue to do everything we can to support and stand in solidarity with #Occupy.
There are plenty of ways to take action to Make Wall Street Pay—from helping homeowners facing illegal foreclosures to a campaign encouraging municipalities, schools, and organizations to move their money to local banks to protesting at branches of Wall Street banks. But only people in Westbury know what will work best in your community. That's why it's so important to attend a Make Wall Street Pay planning meeting in your area.
Your nearest Make Wall Street Pay meeting is in Westbury on Saturday, Oct. 22, 2011, at 2:00 PM. Can you attend?
Thanks for all you do.
