Occupy the Capitol
We will occupy our state capitol in Olympia, WA during the special legislative session, and we will tell our lawmakers that we have had enough. Put a face on the 99 percent with personal stories of the devastation suffered because of state budget cuts.

My husband and myself are older, displaced workers.  He was a roofer for thirty years and I worked in Home Health putting myself through school.  I have a Master’s degree and have been looking for full time work for nearly three years.  We are struggling to keep our heads above water and keep our home from going into foreclosure doing part-time jobs.  We have no healthcare insurance for our family.  This pic is of my husband and 11 year old daughter at OccupyVancouver in SW Washington.  We are the ninety-nine percent.
