The grassroots movement to Occupy Wall Street and demand economic justice is growing, not only in New York City, but in cities across the country as well.
NYSNA members, supporters and staff participated in the Community and Labor March to Wall Street on October 5 to lend their voices and support, demonstrating that the need for change for working people is real. The NYSNA group convened in front of the association office at 120 Wall Street, donning tee shirts, clappers, whistles and signs. They gathered with other marchers and last minute arrivals as the march kicked off at 4:30 PM from Foley Square.
For those who couldn't join Wednesday’s protest in person, MoveOn.org organized a virtual march for the same day.
NYSNA members are encouraged to check back often for updates and future events in this evolving movement.
