We are empowered.
And we are making change!
Please click around and check out what we’re doing–especially our curriculum, Teach the Budget. It’s full of facts and analysis that offer a pretty stark view of the economic crisis and how it’s affected the 99%.
Last year, California ranked 9th among the states with the highest concentration of millionaires, with more than 700,000 residents holding $1 million or more in liquid assets–an 8% increase over 2009.
Meanwhile, California’s poverty rates have reached record levels and we now have the 2nd-highest foreclosure rates in the country. If the Gini coeficient is a reliable indicator, California has surpassed China, Russia, and India in economic inequality.
This is unjust, unconscionable, and unacceptable.
