Obama Wants to "Occupy The Vote" in NOLA!
President Obama will be coming to New Orleans to "Occupy The Vote" for the 2012 National Urban League Conference and will be attending a Reception For the Obama Victory Fund (OVF) at the House of Blues.
The reception is at 3:30 pm Wednesday, July 25! Although the notice "“Please join President Obama for a reception with supporters like you in New Orleans” is included with the invitation, many of the NOLA 99% will not be able to afford the 250 price of a ticket.
The National Urban League Conference, will last for three and a half days as they present Occupy the Vote: Employment & Education Empower the Nation, the clarion call for all conference participants to be informed and deeply engaged in the various elements of economic empowerment.
This conference is sponsored by Shell Oil!
Since we can't afford to pay $250 to voice our concerns in person at House of Blues, we'll be Chalkupying the amphitheater across from Jackson Square in the French Quarter at 2pm.
We hope you'll stop by the Amphitheater, grab some chalk, and write your message to Obama, or print it on an index card we'll provide.
Or, you can submit your concern HERE and we'll chalkupy it for you!
3:30 Rally & Pots and Pans March
Below are some but not all of the concerns we plan to address!
