People Speak Out Nationwide, Will President Listen?

This past Wednesday, grassroots activists in seven cities across the United States held banner drops across the United States calling on the president to sign an executive order that would require government contractors to disclose political spending.  Organized by 99Rise, these banner drops are the latest example of acts of civil disobedience taken to spur a national movement on campaign finance reform.

If you haven't, take a moment to sign the half-million strong petition, then check out some of these moving protests!


Pittsburgh activists went quite high to get the message out.

DC activists went for a more symbolic height - with an amazing song!
