WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF US?

Grassroots Activists To Hold Davis & Simon Accountable On

Economic Issues at Candidate's Forum

LOS ANGELES, CA –- Women on welfare and their children, low wage workers, and supporters of the Los Angeles Chapter of the National Campaign for Jobs and Income Support will rally outside the gubernatorial candidate's forum hosted by the LA Times at 11:30 AM on Monday, October 7, 2002. They will arrive with picket signs, banners, and costumes for guerrilla theater demanding that Governor Gray Davis and Republican candidate Bill Simon answer the following question: What About the Rest of Us?

The Governor recently vetoed legislation that would have helped families climb out of poverty. His vetoes included bills that would have expanded the Healthy Families Program to cover low-income working parents and increased access to education and training for parents on welfare. His recent budget cuts also disproportionately affected low-income families.

Republican candidate for Governor, Bill Simon, has made campaign promises that include deregulation of business and privatization of our public utilities. But, what about the rest of us?

This protest is the first of many What About The Rest Of Us? events planned for campaign stops around the state and country in the coming weeks. Activists will seek to hold the Bush Administration and others accountable for their failure to address the economic insecurity of millions of Americans – while turning a blind eye to corporate corruption. At each of these events, activists will burnish their orange and blue logo and will be accompanied by a human question mark.
