99Rise National Day of Action - Fast for Democracy Los Angeles

Saturday, November 01, 2014 at 12:00 PM · 20 rsvps
Los Angeles City Hall in Los Angeles, CA

This Saturday, November 1st is a National Day of Fasting as part of the 99Rise Fast for Democracy. Here in Los Angeles we will be gathering at City Hall to fast, support our fasters, and reach out to the public about the urgency of voting this November.

The Fast for Democracy is a call to all who believe in "one person, one vote" political equality to pledge to use their vote this November and support pro-democracy candidates who will fight for reform to end corruption.

Kai Newkirk and other 99Rise leaders who have joined the fast like Steve Bass and Laura Rubalcalba are fasting until at least 28,000 Americans (after the 28th Amendment for which we fight) pledge to take a stand against corruption and vote in support of pro-democracy candidates this November.

This Saturday in LA we will join with them and others in California and across the country to lift up our message of nonviolent action to end corruption and win real democracy.

FAQ's

DO I NEED TO FAST TO ATTEND THIS EVENT?

No, not at all. Your presence is a great support to those who fast and will help us project our message via social and traditional media. 

HOW DO I FIND THE PRO-DEMOCRACY CANDIDATES TO VOTE FOR?

We've developed Voter Guides with endorsements of pro-democracy candidates for almost all states including California. They are not comprehensive but cover most statewide or federal races and we continue to improve them. You can find them here: http://fast.99rise.org/voter_guide

IS FASTING SAFE?

Yes. While physically and especially psychologically challenging, fasting is safe and can actually be very good for your health. Most people can fast safely for 30 days or more - 1 or 2 days is nothing at all to worry about. Still, because of our deep attachment to food it is a powerful sacrifice that demonstrates a serious commitment to our cause.

Let the People Vote Rally- Sacramento

Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 12:00 PM · 25 rsvps

The CA Supreme Court voted 5-1 to remove Prop 49 from the ballot this November essentially removing the people’s right to have our voice heard on a very important advisory measure that would urge congress to act towards overturning the disastrous Citizen’s United Supreme Court ruling that fueled the fire of income inequality and severely weakened our democracy by equating money with speech and corporations with people.

It’s time to rise up together and let the CA Supreme Court know what we think of their ruling…this Wednesday, August 20th the people’s voice will be heard! 99Rise is coordinating peaceful demonstrations at the three Supreme Court offices SF, LA, and Sacramento. Find your location and make your voice heard, remember that together our voice is more powerful than any amount of money being used to silence it. All together now: Money ain’t speech, Corporations aren’t people!!
