99 Percent Out Loud homepage slider

99 Percent Out Loud Inc is a non-partisan non-profit organization with the goal of making Congress work for all Americans instead of special interests, corporations and the 1%. It’s time to bring fairness back to our democracy and promote prosperity for all.

What we do: We provide information on legislation that impacts the middle-class (a term that has come to represent the 99% since most Americans identify as middle-class). Then we encourage all Americans to unite together to remind Congress who they work for – US! We can no longer sit on the sidelines and allow big money to rule Congress. Our strength is in our numbers. If we speak out loud with one voice, Congress must listen. And that’s how democracy works for everyone and not just the few at the top.

What can I do? Be out loud! Democracy is a team sport. You can’t get results by sitting on the sidelines. There are no pinch hitters so it’s up to all of us to get involved. It’s easy and takes just minutes. Call your members of Congress to express how you want them to vote on legislation. Remember, they work for you.

Big Surprise – Congress Ignores Will of Voters to Favor Special Interests
