Benefit for Occupy Buffalo - December 4th

Message from Bill Nowak:
I recently started working for the Health Care Coordinating Committee (HCCC) of the CWA - Communications Workers of America. The CWA has endorsed the Occupy movement, and one of my first tasks has been to help organize a benefit for Occupy Buffalo.

Some of your courageous and motivated neighbors are going to be spending a very cold winter in Niagara Square raising economic justice issues that are important to all of us.

We are holding a Benefit on Sunday, December 4th from 6pm-9pm at the Pearl Street Grill to help keep them fed, supported, and as warm as possible as they struggle to confront injustice.

Can you help us with this Benefit? A few ways are open to you ...

1.  We're holding an organizing meeting on Tuesday November 29 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM.  We'd love to have you at the meeting to help with the logistics and outreach for the benefit. The meetings will be at CWA Local 1168, upstairs at 505 Delaware Ave in Buffalo (between Allen and Virginia).

2.  If you can't make the meetings, but would like to help, please 
  • Send the FLIER to everyone on your email list who might want to know about the benefit or post a printed copy in a public place
  • Talk the benefit up wherever you go
  • Post the information on the benefit to your website, blog and/or facebook page 
  • Print out copies of the hand bill (2-sided), cut them in half and give them out wherever you like 
  • If you'd like to sell tickets and can't make it to the meeting, call Bill Nowak at the office 716-824-2042 or cell 716-316-7674
3.  Please make sure you contribute financially if you can.  We want a huge turnout for the benefit, but if you can't make it, please donate via mail.  Any amount would be appreciated - $99, $49.50, $24.75, $9.90 - whatever you can spare to support this vital movement.

Checks can be made out to CWA HCCC, with Occupy Buffalo in the memo line.
Mail to: CWA HCCC, Attention: Bill Nowak, 821 Elk St, SuiteB, Buffalo, NY 14210
