Occupy America - We are the 99%

American history is rich with stories of social change inspired by the actions of motivated individuals and organized groups. Today’s activists are no different — facing long odds against powerful and systemic special interests.

On this weekend’s Moyers & Company, Bill Moyers talks with young but very experienced organizers George Goehl, Ai-jen Poo, and  Sarita Gupta – all involved with a nationwide citizens’ initiative called the The 99% Spring, which takes place the week of April 9th. Organizers aim to train 100,000 Americans to teach about income inequality in homes, places of worship, campuses and the streets.
