#OccupytheBoardRoomIt’s time to #OccupytheBoardRoom.

Thousands of protesters have been occupying Wall Street for the past several weeks to take their demands for social and economic justice directly to the richest 1% of Americans — the very folks who are benefiting most from the inequality in our system while the other 99% of us face endless layoffs, fee hikes, stagnant wages, and climate change bankrolled by Wall Street.

We can’t all be camped out in Zuccotti Park, but now we can all send messages directly to the CEOs and board members of the top financial institutions in the world. RAN has teamed up with a variety of labor and economic justice groups, including Rebuild The Dream and Jobs With Justice, to give you a tool to send your message directly to the 1%.

Help #OccupytheBoardRoom by sending your message to the 1% now.

Fed up with Bank of America and other big Wall Street banks underwriting dirty coal and wrecking our climate? Fed up with the inordinate political influence exerted by the richest of the rich? Fed up with the lack of decent jobs for the 99% while fat cats get massive bonuses?

#OcuppytheBoardRoom is your chance to express exactly what you’re feeling directly to the 1%ers responsible for these injustices.

Now more than ever, the people at the top of the world’s biggest corporations need to feel the full force of the 99% of us who speak for what is right and what our communities need.

Need some ideas for your message? We put together this collage of some of our favorite signs from #OccupyWallStreet to get you inspired:

  1. Hello Ms. Starbuck,

    I love almost everything about RAN, and regularly network your info…
    but am very sad to hear you are working with moveon & their spawn ‘rebuild the dream’

    Electing obummer was TERRIBLE, obviously.

    Today, of course — I am CELEBRATING that the betrayal of the ‘hope’ that moveon sold us
    has in no small part.. contributed to the AWAKENING of the people
    WHO WILL NOT be buying in .. to more corporate politics via moveon & the like

    STRONGLY suggest you keep some DISTANCE and careful perspective in dealing with what appears to me (and many others) as a FRONT organization for the military dominance machine .. moveon’s candidate obummer is up to his eyeballs in more war than a BUSH regime would’ve even hoped for in their wet dreams

    interesting, how they admit to being a “front” – so “know them by their deeds” and beware !

    Hi David: Thanks for your feedback on this and thanks for networking our campaigns.

    Lots of groups and individuals came together to create and promote #OccupytheBoardroom, including New Bottom Line, Main Street Alliance, NY ALIGN and the orgs you mention.

    #OTBR was a great idea – and an inspired crew came together to make that idea happen. I like that so many people and organizations who are normally focused on single issues are recognizing that we’ve got a lot in common and standing up together, inspired by #OccupyWallStreet.
