>From the struggle to secure the vote for women, to the strikes that
built power for workers and unions, to the civil rights movement, our
nation's greatest steps forward have come when everyday people stood up
and took courageous and morally compelling direct action.
We can create that kind of change again in America.
During the week of April 9-15, in small towns and big cities all across
America, 100,000 people will come together for an unprecedented national
nonviolent direct action training. We'll learn to tell the story of our
economy and what went wrong; we'll learn the history of nonviolent
direct action; and, we'll learn how we can take action and create great
change in this country.

Last year, from the Wisconsin workers who took over their state capitol
to Occupy Wall Street, we saw a new movement in America using direct
action to highlight the massive inequality that's destroying our country.
We need to continue to make the voices of the 99% impossible to ignore.
Local organizations and volunteers are running more than 750 trainings
in living rooms, union halls, churches, and community centers
nationwide. All we need now is to get as many people as possible to join
in - people like YOU.
The 99% Spring is our chance to learn how we can take action to
challenge corporate power, end tax giveaways to the 1%, fight the
influence of money in politics, and create an economy that works for all
