The Other 99%: Share your story!

1. Make your letter

Inspired by "We are the 99%" we are encouraging people to help put a face to the 99%. Take a picture of yourself holding a handwritten sign that describes your situation in one sentence, for example: "I'm a single mom, who's going back to school." or "I'm unemployed and the bank keeps threatening to take our house, I don't know what my family is going to do."

Below that, write "I am the 99%."

2.Take a picture of yourself holding the sign

Try and show at least a part of your face, and make sure your handwritten sign is legible.

3. Upload your picture

Petitions and Surveys

For petitions and surveys you've signed or completed, we treat your name, city, state, and comments as public information - for example, we may provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to the President and legislators, other targets, or to the press. We will not make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit it to members of Congress and to the President as part of a petition. This is a standard industry practice in such situations. In no such case will we disclose your email address or phone number without your permission. We may also make your comments, along with your first name, city, and state available to the press and public online.

Under circumstances where we determine that members may be misusing our systems for malicious purposes (for example, using the numbers we provide to make harassing phone calls), such activities may be reported to law enforcement agencies. In such cases, MoveOn may release personally identifiable information, including name and address, to those agencies.
