United for a Fair Economy- check out this organization!

Post by CLO on Thu Apr 21, 2011 5:24 pm

Just wondering if anyone else has heard of United for a Fair Economy- check out their site, they are a great bunch of people doing some great things behind the scenes..

Responsible Wealth (RW) is a network of over 700 business leaders and wealthy individuals in the top five percent of income and/or wealth in the U.S. As beneficiaries of economic policies tilted in their favor, these individuals advocate for fair taxes and corporate accountability. Their message is simple, and surprising to some: we can afford to pay more; we don’t need any more tax breaks.

Members of Responsible Wealth recognize that their own prosperity and success would not be possible without the foundation of a strong public education system, an effective transportation network, a strong legal system and more. RW members are bound by their commitment to supporting the public investments from which they have greatly benefited.

Responsible Wealth members actively engage in high-profile tax fairness advocacy in a variety of ways:
■Speaking out to the media about economic fairness issues (taxes, wage issues, budget issues, corporate accountability, etc.).
■Taking the Tax Fairness Pledge to redirect tax savings to tax fairness efforts.
■Lobbying state legislators or Congress.
■Participate in RW’s shareholder accountability initiative by filing resolutions and attending annual meetings (either in person or through a proxy).
■Directly supporting grassroots tax fairness organizing work in their state.

Responsible Wealth is just one of their many projects. It has done my heart good to see that there are actually wealthy people with hearts who are working for social justice in our society.
