Occupy Wall Street ~ @BoldProgressive #ows

Progressive Change Campaign Committee

We thanked Occupy Wall Street for inspiring our campaign against Bank of America. Watch & join today!
Occupy Wall Street

On Friday, we went to Occupy Wall Street and thanked protestors for inspiring our national campaign against Bank of America -- now joined by over 60,000 Americans! (See video here.)
After taking billions in bailouts, Bank of America continued to represent the worst of Wall Street greed -- illegally foreclosing on people's homes. This month, the greed continued with a new $60-per-year fee for using debit cards on things like groceries.
Join 60,000 Americans and tell Congress to pass Rep. Brad Miller's bill making it easier to "move your money" away from bad banks.

The Huffington Post reported on our campaign:
Rep. Brad Miller, a Democrat from Bank of America's home state of North Carolina, attended a general assembly meeting of Occupy Raleigh, the local offshoot of the national protest movement against Wall Street greed and abuse.
When he returned to Washington, he announced the introduction of a bill that aims to make it easier for millions of consumers to take part in their own personal marches -- away from big banks. 
...the nearly 800,000-member advocacy group Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) launched a national campaign to win support for Miller's legislation, calling on people to sign a petition and contact their member of Congress. 
Let's get from 60,000 to 100,000 Americans strong on this campaign! Click here to sign the "move your money" petition holding Bank of America accountable!
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
