Action Alert: On May 12, Make Big Banks and Millionaires Pay
May 3, 2011
On Thursday, May 12, Housing Works will join thousands of New Yorkers to send a loud, clear message to Mayor Bloomberg: Stop the budget cuts and make big banks pay their fair share.
Big banks crashed our economy, destroying jobs and foreclosing on millions of homes. Taxpayers paid for their bailout, but now Wall Street is making billions in profits and doling out record bonuses. Meanwhile, Housing Works clients and many of our fellow New Yorkers are still hurting -- and billionaire Bloomberg has proposed devastating cuts.
Enough is enough. There is no revenue crisis, there is an inequality crisis.
That's why a coalition of working people, students, seniors, people on public assistance and community activists will descend on Wall Street and create a giant classroom without walls in order to teach New Yorkers about who really destroyed our economy -- and what we can do to save it.
Join us for this historic teach-in and rally!
