Coalition to Launch Major Campaign to Stop Social Security Privatization

Leaders of a coalition representing millions of working Americans will counter President Bush's economic conference promoting his plan to privatize Social Security in a news conference Thursday at the National Press Club, one hour before the President delivers closing remarks. Leaders of the coalition include John Sweeney of the AFL-CIO, Julian Bond of the NAACP, Kim Gandy of NOW, George Kourpias of the Alliance for Retired Americans, and Marty Ford of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities

Led by Campaign for America's Future Co-director Roger Hickey, the group will launch an aggressive campaign to stop President Bush's plan to dismantle Social Security by mobilizing citizen action in every community and Congressional district in America. Coalition leaders, none of whom were invited to the president's economic summit, represent labor, seniors, women, civil rights, disability and other activists nationwide.
