A black and white street view of skyscrapers.

All across our society, monopolistic corporations govern much of our economic lives and exert extraordinary influence over our democracy.

The New York Stock Exchange building.

With Wall Street’s help, they extract more and more wealth and power from working people, independent businesses, entrepreneurs, ordinary investors, consumers, and entire communities.

Working together, we can break their unjust hold on power to realize economic liberty for everyone and help build a vibrant, inclusive democracy.
