Ice cream legends Ben & Jerry explain support of the Occupy Wall Street movement

Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, co-founders of Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream, will be at the National Press Club today to discuss why and how they feel business leaders should work to reduce economic inequality and to explain why they support the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrators.

In a statement of support on the Ben and Jerry website, the Board of Directors writes, "As a board and as a company we have actively been involved with these issues for years but your efforts have put them out front in a way we have not been able to do."

Cohen and Greenfield join American Morning today to explain why they support the Occupy movement and to offer  their suggestions about how to create the changes proposed by the OWS demonstrators.
