Dear Nina,

The 99% Spring is coming.

Groups from every corner of our movement�inspired by the everyday heroes of Occupy Wall Street and Madison �are planning a massive campaign of bold nonviolent direct actions to make the voices of the 99% impossible to ignore.

The key is making the 99% Spring as big as possible. That's why during the week of April 9-15, in small towns and big cities all across America, 100,000 people will come together for an unprecedented national movement-wide nonviolent direct action training. We'll learn to tell the story of our economy and what went wrong, we'll learn the history of nonviolent direct action, and we'll learn how we can take action and create great change in this country.

Local organizations and volunteers are running more than 750 trainings in living rooms, union halls, churches, and community centers nationwide. All we need now is to get as many people as possible to join in - people like YOU.

Our nation's greatest steps forward have come when everyday people stood up and took courageous, visionary, morally compelling direct action�from the struggle to secure the vote for women, to the strikes that built power for workers and unions, to the civil rights movement.

Now we need to create that kind of change again in America.

Last year, from the Wisconsin workers who took over their state capitol to Occupy Wall Street, we saw a new movement in America using direct action to highlight the massive inequality that's destroying our country.

The 99% Spring is our chance to maintain and broaden that changemaking energy, and learn how we can take action to challenge corporate power, end tax giveaways to the 1%, fight the influence of money in politics, and create an economy that works for all of us.

Our movement is uniting, and this is a chance for all of us to come together to shift the political landscape in America. Will you join in?

Thank you for all you do to make this movement real.
