Living Wage NYC Holds Successful Coalition Meeting!

August 18, 2010

More than 60 people came to a very successful Living Wage NYC coalition meeting last Wednesday night, August 11! During the meeting, we developed some new campaign materials and had a discussion on how the campaign is being received in different groups and boroughs. Participants also held in-depth discussions of the broader campaign plan overview, followed by smaller break-out sessions of how the coalition members could affect change within their borough.

Rev. Dr. Peter Heltzel of the Micah Institute delivered an inspirational presentation, reminding the meeting participants that labor, religious leaders, congregations and the community are all connected in this struggle started by Dr. King Jr., and that all voices together will get the attention of the undecided council members and educate for justice.

We are very excited to have a growing coalition. We're launching an ambitious and inspiring plan of action for the Fall, and we look forward to working with everyone in the coming months. Be sure to stay tuned to www.livingwagenyc.org for our latest updates on meetings, events and actions!
