Dear MoveOn member,
Do you know what's so outrageous about the many problems facing the 99%?
That there's a simple solution to most of them: Tax the 1%.
If millionaires and big business paid their fair share in taxes, our communities could invest in job creation, schools, health care, and clean energy. Instead, the opposite is happening: Vital programs and services are being slashed or de-funded.
That's why MoveOn members are working with progressive allies to organize hundreds of "Tax the 1%" protests nationwide on Tax Day, April 17. We'll deliver giant-sized "tax bills" to Big Banks, tax dodging corporations, and politicians and stand up to a tax code rigged for the 1%. Can you lead a Tax the 1% protest in Inwood on Tuesday, April 17?
In Washington, D.C. and in our state capitols, politicians are responding to strained budgets with more cuts for the 99%. With the heightened media attention on Tax Day, we can make sure the politicians and CEOs hear our demand loud and clear: Tax the 1% to rebuild an economy that works for all of us.
With hundreds of big and small events, we can amplify our simple but important message. Can you host a Tax the 1% event in Inwood on Tuesday, April 17?
Thanks for all you do.
–Garlin, Laura, Joan, Alejandro, and the rest of the team
P.S. It's really easy to organize an event. Once you create an event, you'll get access to a Host Guide and priority emails with tips and materials to help you organize a powerful protest.
