MoveOn members have fought side-by-side with Sen. Warren to put in place a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and nearly 500,000 of us have joined her efforts to lower the interest rate on student loans. And Prof. Piketty is an acclaimed economist who has brought even more intellectual firepower to the national debate with research that Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman calls "a revelation."1

This conversation is an important step in laying the groundwork for a progressive agenda that'll take on the root causes of inequality. I don't think you'll want to miss it.

Thanks for all you do.

Ilya, Justin, Maria, Manny, and the rest of the team
