At this moment, we face an incredible choice. We can fight to win back the economy we had before the financial crisis. Or, we can allow ourselves to reimagine what's possible... We are in a moment that provides the rare opportunity to usher in transformative change. After the worst economic crisis since the Depression, it's natural that our instincts are to save what we've got. But this is no time to play it safe. Opportunities to deliver game-changing justice don't come along very often. Let's seize this one...”

This is the impetus behind The 99% Power--one of the most exciting and historic opportunities we have to challenge corporate America and the big banks this Spring.
To amplify this exciting work, we're partnering with dozens of other groups to release a hard-hitting new video and call to action, A Public Service Announcement from The 99% — and we need YOUR help to spread the word.
People are coming together — workers and retirees, the unemployed and families fighting foreclosure, environmental activists, immigrants, and family farmers — to demand that corporations pay their fair share in taxes, that justice is wrung from the big banks and that we create an economy and democracy that works for all.
Starting next week with the annual Wells Fargo shareholder meeting in San Francisco and Bank of America in early May, and dozens of dates and locations in between, you can join with The New Bottom Line and many others in the largest mobilization around corporate shareholder meetings in history. Stay tuned for details on how you can take action over the next month as we confront corporate power.
Together we can join bold 99% Power actions that take on abusive corporations and the 1% — and this video is a great way to get people excited... and winning!
