New website coming soon! In the meantime, check out the latest version of our toolkit at beautifulrising.org

“On many occasions it deploys humor as a political weapon: Beautiful Trouble is an entertaining and audacious book which provokes smiles in the reader.”

Julia Ramírez Blanco, Re-visones

The Other 98% was founded on the premise that our economy and democracy should work for everyday Americans, not the elite 2% of bankers, CEOs and lobbyists who’ve hijacked our democracy and rigged the system to serve themselves. It’s the middle class that’s too big to fail, and we’re using creative tactics — both online and in the streets — to, well, rally ourselves to our own cause. We stand in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and allied efforts to build a people-powered movement that can break the corporate stranglehold on our democracy and achieve true economic justice. other98.com

Note: Our “98%” framing preceded the OWS “99%” by more than a year, but we are happy to see a slightly tweaked version of this meme taking off worldwide. :-)
