The American Spring

Last fall I told anyone who would listen that these now past few months would not be the American Winter that followed the Arab Spring. No, it was going to take longer here for the numbers to rise and be heard. But the spring is finally here, the American Spring. Join in and be a part of your life and your country again.

Read this call to action and then join up with your neighbors and friends to take back America from the greed of Wall Street and the complacency of Washington. This is not the time for inaction, this is not the time to say "Occupy was interesting but it's over." Change is finally possibly but not if we remain on the sidelines.

From April 9-15 we will gather across America, 100,000 strong, in homes, places of worship, campuses and the streets to join together in the work of reclaiming our country. We will organize trainings to:
  1. Tell the story of our economy: how we got here, who’s responsible, what a different future could look like, and what we can do about it
  2. Learn the history of non-violent direct action, and
  3. Get into action on our own campaigns to win change.

Add you name and your hopes here: American Spring.
