2:00pm – 4:00pm
UNITE / HERE – Local 2
215 Golden Gate Ave.
(nr. Civic Center BART)
OccupySF Action Council: http://occupyactionsf.org
Everyone is invited to attend and participate in a discussion for planning a Town Hall Meeting with our Representative in Congress. There is concern that Congress members pay more attention to corporate lobbyists than they do to the ordinary citizens in their district. It has been proposed the citizens of San Francisco plan a town hall meeting and summon their representative to attend during the summer recess of Congress. The topic will be ways to increase the power of the people over that of the corporations.
We will write the summons and then must get out on the streets to get people and organizations to sign the summons to be delivered to Congress Rep. Pelosi. We will plan the time, place and organization of the town hall meeting.
This is not an attack on our Representative; we will offer positive ideas for increasing the power of the people on our Federal government. We want the voice of the people to be heard and acted upon over the corporate forces that are so powerful today. We will be seeking to improve our democracy.
