UltraViolet's going to be in NYC , and I think you'd be interested in joining us. Here's what's going on: Rick Perry recently vetoed a popular, bipartisan equal pay bill in Texas. It turns out, Macy's secretly lobbied him to veto it. This is a huge deal for women, and we need to show Macy's that they can't get away with this, in Texas or anywhere else in the country.
So, we'll be gathering at their flagship store in Herald Square — the best place to shine a spotlight on Macy's — and we need tons of people there to get the attention of the media. You should come!
Nearly 80,000 UV members have signed the petition demanding Macy's pledge to never lobby against equal pay again. We want to make a really big media splash and deliver the signatures to Macy's flagship in Herald Square.
We could really use your help--can you join us for the petition delivery thisin Herald Square?
What: Petition Delivery to Macy's Herald Square
Where: 151 W 34th St, New York, NY 10001
I hope to see your there!
