Seiu letter

  1. 1. By now youve seen the thousands of brave students, workers and the unemployed occupying Wall Street.But did you know that as of yesterday, there are over 300 solidarity "occupy events" happening across thecountry and around the clock?In Philadelphia, 1,000+ individuals took to City Hall on Tuesday night.In Washington, D.C., people have camped out in McPherson Square, symbolically located on K Street,since last week.In L.A., citizens have spent six straight days and nights outside City Hall protesting against incomeinequality and joblessness.The crowds and peaceful demonstrations will only get larger and louder as more Americans find thecourage to stand up and demand Wall Street, CEOs and millionaires pay their fair share to create goodjobs now.This is the moment that determines whether this movement succeeds or falls flat. Will you pledge tohelp the movement spread by visiting an Occupy event in Aurora? You can sign up and find acomprehensive list of events here:http://action.seiu.org/occupy-wall-street
  2. 2. Over the last few weeks weve seen crowds of "Occupy Wall Street" protestors capture the nationsattention as they stood their ground despite aggressive police behavior and hundreds of arrests.These courageous young activists have given us all a shot of inspiration and hope that we can indeed turnthis country around.We are proud of the actions taken by 1199 United Healthcare Workers East, SEIU 32BJ and other SEIUlocal unions to support the Wall Street protests.But as we talk to other "Occupy" participants across the country, they tell us their first need is people.So were working with our friends at Daily Kos to see if we can help.Find an Occupy event happening in your city and pledge to sign up to get involved. You can do thathere:http://action.seiu.org/occupy-wall-streetAs part of a peaceful, united movement we can do so much more to demonstrate the increasing urgencyof the crisis our country faces and shine a light on those responsible.Lets go for it!In solidarity,Mary Kay HenryPresident, SEIU
