Background

During the past year, Resource Generation and Wealth for the Common Good have been developing a campaign to amplify the voices of young wealthy people for tax justice. Just as the 99 percent has been a powerful rallying cry, the 1 percent has come to represent those who hold the majority of this country’s resources and have created—and benefited from—this financial crisis. For those of us with more than we need who believe in a more just distribution of resources, it’s important that we tell the truth about how the deck has been stacked in our favor, and that 100 percent of us need a different world. Tax us!

This campaign has now expanded to other areas of Wealth for the Common Good’s work. Read our Call to the 1% and find out how you can get involved.
