SEIU 1199 President George Gresham
Calls on us to Join the Fight For a Fair Economy

At this important moment in American history come hear a major national
labor leader discuss next steps in building a movement to confront major
issues confronting the country:

   - The attacks against public services and public employees
   - Continued funding for war draining resources from our communities
   - The expanding income divide between rich and poor
   - How tax breaks for large companies and the super wealthy are depriving
   our communities of good jobs, good schools, and vital services

George Gresham is President of 1199SEIU, a union of 375,000 healthcare
workers in Massachusetts, New York, Washington D.C., Maryland, New Jersey
and Florida. Mr. Gresham is also one of the founders of One Nation Working
Together.

One Nation Working Together is a social movement of individuals and
organizations committed to putting America back to work and pulling America
back together. Coming from a diverse set of backgrounds, experiences,
beliefs and orientations, we are determined to build a more united country
with good jobs, equal justice, and quality public education for all.
