We're at a crossroads as a country. Millions have lost their jobs; homes have been foreclosed on; and an unconscionable number of children live in poverty. We have to stand up to the people who have caused this and confront the rampant greed and deliberate manipulation of our democracy and our economy by a tiny minority of the 1 percent.
We have a long history over everyday people shaping the direction of our country by standing up for their own dignity, and community. Rosa Parks refused to sit in the back of a bus in Alabama, and sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Workers in Flint, Michigan, occupied their plant to form a union. Women took to the streets and held hunger strikes to demand the right to vote.
Inspired by Occupy Wall Street, and the recent fight for workers in Madison, Wisconsin, the 99% will rise up this spring. We'll start by training 100,000 people in April to take direct action on our own campaigns to win change.
We will win change with people power. We will dramatically increase our people power when we train a massive amount of people to join in sustained, non-violent action to reclaim our country.
Be one of the 100,000 People trained to take action
