Warren in 2016! Donate Here
This is a major victory for the Warren wing of American politics.
Wall Street tried to install one of their own in a key position overseeing...Wall Street.
Elizabeth Warren fought back. We fought by her side with allies, even leading a protest outside the Wall Street firm where Weiss worked. And yesterday, we won.
Elizabeth Warren says: "PCCC members were with me since the beginning -- even before there was a beginning! Now, we have lots of work to do together."
MSNBC reported on our protest outside Lazard, Weiss's Wall Street firm:
The growing anti-Wall-Street movement led by Sen. Elizabeth Warren took its fight from the halls of Washington, D.C., to the streets of New York City...
Outside Citigroup, about 120 protesters called for the breakup of the big banks...Around half of the crowd marched to Lazard's office, where they called for Weiss to come down and explain why his background made him suitable for the Treasury Department job...
The protest was organized by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, which says it represents the "Elizabeth Warren wing" of the Democratic Party.
We were proud to work with the Working Families Organization, Democracy for America, Credo Action, and others as part of this fight.
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
-- Keith Rouda, PCCC Organizer
