Coming Together in a Movement of Movements

The 99% Declaration provides a rare opportunity to bring together the various organizations fighting diligently on behalf of critically important single issues in a potential "Movement of Movements" to garner widespread support for issues many of us agree need to be addressed and redressed immediately.

The more our voices join together in unison, the more they will be heard.  At this time of crisis in our democracy, we must unite our disparate causes into a single effort wherever our interests intersect to quickly correct the course of our country and restore democracy BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE.

Please invite the organizations you are involved in - it's easy with our draft letter.  Just copy and fill in or replace the information where appropriate and send!

Invite Organization Advocates to Support Their Grievances

When a prominent local, state or national organization states its support for a 99% Declaration grievance and our effort to change our country's political system, this can educate its own members and also attract press coverage. You can encourage organizations to endorse The 99% Declaration and to run their own Delegate Candidates. 

Few things are more effective in building a large network of support than connecting with other already established groups or organizations in a "Movement of Movements". These groups have done the groundwork of building a following, so by linking in with their group, you gain access to a large number of already active people. And since the need for complete system change is at the heart of so many issues, there are likely many groups interested in the grievances of the 99% Declaration.

State Coordinators

Hi all, each state must elect or appoint a state coordinator to hold weekly conference calls with the delegate candidates. Please contact me with the name and email contact with your state coordinators.  You may be a delegate, voter or volunteer to hold this job.  We need to register voters, fill empty seats and work on each state's top ten grievances.

Greetings patriots and revolutionaries!

We've made so much progress!  The venue is paid for and more than half of the election costs are now covered.  Funding for the election of delegates is still needed and we hope to help Delegate Candidates more with their campaigns and travel expenses. Please help us if you can afford it. Donations may be made here through PayPal or by sending a check through the mail to: The 99% Declaration, P.O. Box 190, Red Hook, NY 12571. Support the Delegate Candidates by donating here to the blind trust.

Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work to change the electoral, tax, education, healthcare, economy and social system?
