Dear NYSUT Leaders on Long Island
I am happy to report that Rev. William Barber will be at Stony Brook University on Wednesday afternoon (4 p.m.), Feb 18, 2015, bringing his Moral Monday message to Long Island in a talk titled "The Moral Foundation of Worker Rights." The public is invited and I hope you will bring this important opportunity to the attention of your members and colleagues and urge them to attend. I attach the flier for the event, which you should feel free to reproduce and distribute.
We are organizing bus transportation from points in Nassau and Suffolk Counties for those who prefer not to drive to campus. Details of the event and transportation will be on the "events" section of the Website for the Center for Study of Working Class Life <www.stonybrook.edu/workingclass> after January 20.
Rev. Barber's visit is sponsored by the Center for Study of Working Class Life and College of Arts and Sciences at Stony Brook, and co-sponsored by many labor, religious, and social justice organizations, including the L.I. Federation of Labor; United University Professions (UUP), AFT Local 2190; 1199SEIU; the Long Island Council of Churches; Brookhaven Town NAACP; the Stony Brook School of Social Welfare, the Long Island Progressive Coalition, and the L.I. chapter of Jobs with Justice. On behalf of all those who are organizing this event, I invite NYSUT to help make it as successful as possible so we can build the strongest possible Moral Monday Movement on Long Island.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and to become active in creating this Movement.
