We’ve made a difference already because of all the hard work you all have put in and we want to say thanks...and ask for more.
We need to put the priorities of the 99% first and foremost. These are issues like good jobs, affordable healthcare and safety in the workplace.
We need an economy where everyone who works hard has a fair chance at success and fair tax rules that ensure the 1% and the big corporations pay their fair share.

Our work to get candidates who stand with the 99% elected is just one part of the fight for a fair economy.
Elections matter. We need to use every tool we have to fight for our priorities: good jobs, a fair tax system where the rich & the big corporations pay their fair share, and an economy where everyone has a fair shot at a better future.
That's why we're doing everything we can to elect candidates that put the priorities of the 99% first and why we'll be ready to hold them to account after Election Day.
