This Mardi Gras, join us for music and a march to stop the corporate take over of our democracy.

President Trump has assembled a council of CEOs who are advising him on policies that will help them line their pockets at the expense of everyone else. “We’re bringing back jobs, we’re bringing down your taxes, we’re getting rid of your regulations, and there are some really exciting times ahead,” Trump said.

Cutting corporate taxes and taking away regulations is dangerous for our communities, for public institutions, for workers and for the environment. We must expose the companies who are working with Trump to lead this effort.

Corporations have rigged the system. In Illinois, 2/3 of corporations pay no corporate income tax to the state. And our state is suffering from lack of revenue — there’s been no budget for 19 months. We can resist against Trump’s corporate agenda by forcing our IL lawmakers to pass legislation to close nearly $1 billion in corporate tax loopholes. Join us to advance our message that corporations must pay their fair share.

It’s also Mardi Gras, so we will celebrate. Wear masks, beads, purple, yellow and green. Did you know? — Purple Represents Justice. Green Represents Faith. Gold Represents Power.
