Ben & Jerry Support Occupy Wall Street Movement

Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, co-founders of Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream joined CNN's American Morning Monday to explain why they support the Occupy movement.

Cohen and Greenfield were also scheduled to appear at the National Press Club to discuss why and how they feel business leaders should work to reduce economic inequality, and to discuss their 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."
