Event Description :
Part of nationwide rallies against corporate domination of politics and fair elections, created by two movements. The Other 98% is a grassroots network of concerned citizens, partnered with MoveOn.org, standing against corporate influence in government "... to make our democracy work for the rest of us."

From the organizers: "We will not see change in this country that benefits us all until we end corporate influence in our political system. Cost to attend the rally & sign the pledge $0, benefit if we help change the system to work for everyone, priceless!"
