Political Activists Groups I can join?

3 posts / 0 new

I am a college student in New York and after reading this I feel that I really need to become politically active. I am looking for an activist group that is dedicated to removing special interests from our government or bringing back American manufacturing through legislation or strengthening our unions. If there is a group that encompasses all 3 that would be great. If anyone knows of such groups please post them here

Hi Change Now,

Some of the organizations mentioned on the show may suit you. Some are working on the sort of thing you are interested in, some need somebody to persuade them to do so, and some are sources of information...

Democracy for America, Progressive Democrats of America, Democratic Party, Green Party, or even the Republican Party to reform it from within, MoveOn, Bold Progressives, True Majority, Move to AmendDrinking Liberally, Screening Liberally, Reading Liberally, Common Dreams, Buzzflash.

I've probably missed some. Anyone have any more?

Hi "Change Now" you might take a peek at the following Yahoo Groups:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Eyes_Of_The_People/

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Direct_Democracy/

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/American_Peoples_Plebiscite/

These are just wee and humble efforts that mostly go unnoticed, but maybe they contain ideas that you might value. Join em if you want and add your personal strength to them. Or, take what you want from them and form something for The American People yourself.

Respectfully, DAN 1

Who Should an Economy Serve?

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent. According to the 2014 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse, global inequality has surged since the 2008 financial collapse. The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
