About Us

The Other 98% is both a non-profit organization and a grassroots network of concerned people that shines a light on economic injustice, undue corporate influence and threats to democracy. It works to kick corporate lobbyists out of DC, hold elected officials accountable, and make America work not just for the elite but for the other 98% of us.

Our Mission: We need a massive new movement.

We are a voice for the vast majority of Americans. We are everywhere. And we are hopeful.

We got started on Tax Day, 2010.

The Other 98% is (almost) all of us. It’s a political home for the silent majority of Americans who are tired of corporate control of Washington and the Tea Party extremism that — wittingly or unwittingly — works to protect it.
