Ben & Jerry’s Leads Business Push for Occupy Wall Street

February 28, 2012, 10:30 am

Ice cream magnates Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield are helping lead an effort by left-leaning business leaders to pump money into the “Occupy” movement, The Wall Street Journal writes.

The Ben & Jerry’s founders are on the steering committee of the Movement Resource Group, which aims to raise $1.8-million to re-invigorate the economic-equality campaign that captured global attention last fall but has lost momentum as cities have broken up Occupy protest camps.

The former Nirvana manager Danny Goldberg, the entertainment-industry executive Richard Foos, and the Philadelphia restaurateur Judy Wicks are also active in the effort, which has raised about $300,000 so far. The group will support a New York office for the national Occupy movement and disburse grants of up to $25,000 to protest groups across the country, with five Occupy activists involved in reviewing applications.
