99% Spring Direct Action Training

History is calling; it’s time to step up.

This Spring We Rise!

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 caused this and confront the rampant greed and deliberate manipulation of our democracy and our economy by a tiny minority in the 1%.

We have a long history of 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 start by training 100,000 people in April to take direct action on our own campaigns to win change.
