Our nation's greatest steps forward have come when everyday people stood
up and took courageous, visionary, and morally compelling direct
action—from the struggle to secure the vote for women, to the strikes
that built power for workers and unions, to the civil rights movement.
Now we need to create that kind of change again in America.
Groups from every corner of our movement—inspired by the everyday heroes of Occupy Wall Street and Madison—are planning a massive campaign of bold nonviolent direct actions to make the voices of the 99% impossible to ignore.
During the week of April 9-15, in small towns and big cities all across America, 100,000 people will come together for an unprecedented national nonviolent direct action training. We'll learn to tell the story of our economy and what went wrong; we'll learn the history of nonviolent direct action; and, we'll learn how we can take action and create great change in this country.

Last year, from the Wisconsin workers who took over their state capitol to Occupy Wall Street, we saw a new movement in America using direct action to highlight the massive inequality that's destroying our country.
We need to continue to make the voices of the 99% impossible to ignore.
Local organizations and volunteers are running more than 750 trainings in living rooms, union halls, churches, and community centers nationwide. All we need now is to get as many people as possible to join in - people like YOU.
The 99% Spring is our chance to learn how we can take action to challenge corporate power, end tax giveaways to the 1%, fight the influence of money in politics, and create an economy that works for all of us.
