Good Afternoon everyone, my name is Sahar. I've been in contact with Lauren & Denise about organizing education/outreach on the Buffett Rule. Just to recap, the Buffett Rule is currently stalling in Congress; it proposes tax reform on any person making over a million. And there's less than 400,000 millionaires living in the US. No surprise why Congress doesn't want to pass the rule, 44% of Congress members are millionaires. The Agenda Project made some brilliant videos on this issue (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqxnbPaB37A
). Besides educating people at Liberty Square, I am also determined to fax blast congress. I've gathered all relevant fax numbers and created a petition form. You can see/download the petition at www.shutupxo.tumblr.com
~ my friends & family members on the West Coast have started faxing as of today. I'm aiming to send 500-1000 faxes to the White House for every week that the occupation at Liberty Square continues.
Would anyone like to help me with this project? I need help with talking to people and getting petitions filled. I can handle the actual faxing, etc. Simply put, I want to send a loud and somewhat annoying message to Congress. The caring citizens of the US will no longer be ignored! xoxo
