2nd Anniversary Commemoration of Hurricane Katrina - San Jose
Our march and rally at San Jose State University went VERY well today, as we had 250-300 people in attendance for the commemoration.
Incredibly, the GCCWP march/rally was the lead or second story at 5 pm on EVERY news show in the Bay Area: i.e., CBS, NBC, ABC, and Fox. And live on the San Francisco local CBS morning show.
Check out this news clip from ABC: http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?section=local&id=5617486
We have been told that we will be on the front page tomorrow of the San Jose Mercury News. The story is already online at: http://www.mercurynews.com/breakingnews/ci_6754336.
In addition, we had an op-ed piece in the Mercury by Speaker Pro Tempore Sally Lieber ( http://www.mercurynews.com/opinion/ci_6747291).
We were also on the 3 major news radio stations: KGO, KCBS and KPFA. I will post on our blog a list of all the web sites that covered our story in the next day or two.
We definitely have incredible movement. We go up to Sacramento tomorrow for the vote in the full Assembly for AJR 22, which calls upon the California Congressional delegation to support the development of the Gulf Coast Civic Works Project.
