Ready to join the fight for tax justice?
For far too long, too many of our elected officials at the state and federal levels have catered to the whims of the wealthy and enacted tax policies that line the pockets of the rich and corporations while depriving communities and governments of adequate resources to fund critical programs and services.
Advocates are saying no to regressive state and local tax policies that deprive communities of critical revenue. And at the federal level, the vast majority of Americans continue to hold in ill regard the 2017 tax law that largely benefited corporations and the wealthy. Together, we ordinary working people can stand up to special interests and the lawmakers who back them.
Below is a list of organizations that are mobilizing and/or running campaigns that call for fair, adequate and equitable tax policies.
|The coalition of more than 400 groups, Americans for Tax Fairness, features valuable resources including downloadable protest signs, talking points and a social media kit. Check it out.|
|A group of high-net worth Americans, business leaders, and investors, Patriotic Millionaires believes that the wealthy, who benefit the most from our country’s assets and institutions, should naturally and gladly pay the greatest share of whatever taxes are needed to support the public investment required for social and economic progress.|
|Tax March is a national movement that maintains that any reform to the tax code should be about closing loopholes for the wealthy and big corporations and building an economy that invests in working people, whether white, black, or brown, and prioritizes economic justice particularly for communities of color.|
|Our partners at FACT Coalition, a group of more than 100 organizations working toward fair tax systems, provide resources, policy analyses and action items to promote fair tax systems and combat the harmful impacts of corrupt financial practices.|

|The Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC, BoldProgressives.org) is a million-member grassroots organization building power at the local, state, and federal levels. PCCC partnered with Senator Elizabeth Warren and others to push for a new Glass-Steagall Act and pursue tax and policy reforms to prevent future financial crises.|
