We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we're working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.

5 people. Lost our home in 2008; now we live in the poorest part of a poor city across the country.
1 life threatening disease.1 naturalized citizen with a part-time minimum wage job.2 high school students who struggled with developmental and learning disabilities.1 first generation college grad with 20k in debt, 2 part time minimum wage jobs, and depression/anxiety that has the power to take over my life without medication.
Some weeks we can’t afford groceries. We certainly can’t afford the gas to travel anywhere but work and back.
