This is a sample letter for your use – please feel free to edit and change it to reflect your priorities, etc. and use your name also - attached & copied below. The important thing is that the info goes out!

CodePINK, Cindy Sheehan, and all Vulnerable Folks are calling on you to join us May 1st, 11:30am at the IWD march & rally in San Francisco to Civic Center - where we will kick-off our STRIKE MAY 2011 march to Sacramento!

We are planning to take 8 days to march to Sacramento, doing actions - marches, rallies, press conferences, flyering, bannering - in towns along the way. We will do a combination walking, biking, skating, carpooling, train, etc. to get there.

And we are arriving in Sacramento on the 9th, the same day as the teachers’ occupation begins, setting up a tent city, occupying the grounds until the legislature votes OUR budget!

Our general theme is: 1) NO MORE TAXES for WARS & OCCUPATIONS; and 2) NO MORE TAX BREAKS for the RICH & their CORPORATIONS!

We are hoping everyone will join in the MARCH & TENT CITY for however long, however many day(s), hour(s) you choose.
AND we hope you will bring YOUR main focus/issue and represent! We are thinking of making each day of the walk a different issue/focus. And certainly at the TENT CITY, we are hoping everyone will do teach-ins to share their information and build a strong coalition.
If you are willing to endorse, please email info AT bayareacodepink.org or call 510-540-7007 and leave your name, number, email, and/or organization.
If you are willing to be active and work on this STRIKE MAY 2011 for however long, in any capacity, before, after, during, please also email or call ASAP!
End war on women!
End war on workers, immigrants, people of color!
End wars of occupation!
End wars of corporate greed!
End wars on our Mother Earth!
End all wars!
Bring our tax$$ home!Take our tax$$ back from the rich!

It sounds good but who's striking ? I'm on the email list of most of the seven Bay Area Labor councils and i haven't seen any notice of any unions walking out on any dates. Are the Union workers in Sacramento area going to strike? Or are non union workers hitting the streets like with the Immigrant Workers's actions the last few May Days ?
Some more infro please.
