Welcome to We are The People — a diverse coalition of students, seniors, workers, families and organizations fighting to protect Michigan’s middle class.
What We’re Fighting For
Working and middle class families are under attack. Gov. Snyder and Lansing politicians are exploiting the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression to attack vulnerable seniors, aspiring students, poor families, and dedicated workers.
Gov. Snyder’s budget cut over $700 million from K-12 schools and universities, raised taxes on working families by slashing the Earned Income Tax Credit, and create new taxes on seniors’ pensions — all to pay for a $1.8 billion tax giveaway to corporate special interests like insurance companies, oil companies, and Wall Street banks.
We need to work together and move Michigan forward. It’s time for Gov. Snyder and Lansing politicians to start standing up for the middle class, start creating jobs, and get the economy moving again.
Help Fight Back
To help fight back against these attacks on the middle class, you can join our email list, call your State Legislator, attend rallies in your community, write letters to the editor, and spread the word on Facebook, Twitter and Flickr.
