This page was cited for possible "speedy deletion" because its subject may not meet the necessary level of importance or significance. As the page's creator, I strongly disagree.
The subject, American labor activist Ray Rogers, is a major figure of prominence in the American labor and human rights movement. Rogers is credited with originating the strategy of the "corporate campaign" (sometimes called "comprehensive campaign") and it has been used with great success by labor unions, human rights advocates and environmental activist groups in their battles against corporations in American and all over the world. As developed by Rogers, the corporate campaign uses techniques of targeted protest and public awareness against the individual parts of a company (i.e. it's directors, executives, banks and funding sources) to push the company to respond to the protestors.
Rogers is the founder of Corporate Campaign, Inc. (CCI), a labor union consulting firm, and he and his organization have been featured many times in major publications such as Time, Business Week, Forbes, Fortune, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe and Atlanta Journal Constitution as well as many television and radio programs and newscasts worldwide. Rogers is cited in Marquis "Who's Who in America", and "We Will Be Heard: Voices in the Struggle for Constitutional Rights Past and Present" by Bud and Ruth Schultz (Merrell Publishers, 2008). Rogers' campaigns also have been the subject of documentary films (i.e. "American Dream" and "The Coca-Cola Case"). His work as a labor strategist has led to many college and universities in the U.S. and abroad, including Harvard Business School, to conduct case studies on CCI's campaigns, strategies, and tactics.
"Ray Rogers" is cited as a link in at least five other Wiki pages on subjects such as "comprehensive campaign" and "American Dream (film)".
It is clearly evident that the subject of this page certainly meets any Importance or Notoriety standards that Wikipedia holds.
