DIY Activism: Courage Campaign Freewayblogging

Building awareness one commute at a time. Check it out:

This morning at 8 freeway overpass locations all over California volunteers held giant signs touting the Millionaires Tax of 2012. This included Richmond (seen above) through which hundreds of thousands of commuters pass on their way into San Francisco.

Media from all over the state, including ABC News, has covered the banners and the powerful message behind them: Our tax code needs to reflect the interests of middle-class Californians, not the special interests of corporate CEOs and their lobbyists. Now is the time to revamp our tax code here in California so it's fair to the 99% of us who play by the rules, not just the 1% who lobby hard and re-write the rules.

Banners were held for 2-3 hours in Los Angeles, Costa Mesa, Davis, Santa Cruz, San Diego, Oakland, Richmond, and San Diego. During the afternoon rush hour, a banner will fly in Fresno. All together, it's safe to say we've helped educate hundreds of thousands and perhaps millions about the Millionaires Tax of 2012. Not bad for a day's work!

Not bad at all. Freewayblogger would be proud.
