STAMFORD - The Rev. Jesse Jackson visited a Stamford church Sunday to discuss the current state of the economy.

Jackson kicked off his annual Wall Street Initiative at the Faith Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church in Stamford. Jackson addressed the congregation and told residents more needs to be done to help the middle and lower classes. According to Jackson, the Wall Street bailout did not invest enough in the middle class.

Jackson was joined by local officials, including Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy. Jackson will continue his economic summit in New York City Jan. 13.
