Texas Wal-Mart Organizer Needs Our Support

My name is Colby Harris. I am a member of OUR Walmart (the Organization United for Respect at Walmart) and live in Lancaster, TX.

One of our most courageous members, Marc Bowers, recently suffered a tremendous tragedy. Marc went to New Jersey on behalf of OUR Walmart. While he was away, he lost his home in a horrific fire that engulfed his apartment. Can you help get Marc back on his feet?

For over a year Marc has been advocating not just for Walmart workers, but has served as an active leader in his community seeking equality and justice for everyone. Last June, Marc was fired illegally for his participation and willingness to take a stand and engage in legally protected strikes speaking out over the past year and a half. With the loss of his job and his home, he is in special need of help from anyone willing to lend a hand and anything our community can do to support him in his time of need.

Let's take this opportunity to help Marc out and assist him in getting him back on his feet.

On behalf of all OUR Walmart members, thanks for your support.
In Solidarity,

Colby Harris
