Attention All Federation Affiliate and Chapter Presidents:

We are taking our fight for Fair Wages to the streets!!!

We need to increase public awareness of the unfair, discriminatory,
immoral
practice of paying subminimum wages to workers with disabilities.  To
that
end, on Saturday, August 25, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. local time,
members of the NFB and other concerned citizens will be conducting
informational protests at Goodwill Thrift Store locations around the
country.  Affiliates, chapters, divisions, and groups of the National
Federation of the Blind will join with friends, family, and members of
other
cross-disability organizations to conduct as many informational
demonstrations as possible.

Additional logistical information will be disseminated to all NFB
listservs
in the next few days.

Sincerely,

Anil
