Hey peeps! I head to NYC this week in support of Rev. Sharpton’s Measuring the Movement conference. I was also asked to meet with NAACP President Ben Jealous about the group’s work with accused predatory lender Wells Fargo. As many of you know, I don’t approve of this partnership, so I am not sure if I am going to take the meeting (unless I am convinced that they want to hear fresh ideas and not just try to convince me that their ideas are the right ones). But I’d like your help…..if you have any ideas on what I should ask Ben about this interesting partnership, please let me know what you think. I’m curious to get additional feedback from my supporters on this issue, since my only goal is to represent the interests of the people. I’ll let you know how it goes.
