Americans for Tax Fairness and our allies participated in a National Day of Action that took place on February 20th, 2013. There were over 100 events taking place in 23 states across the country amplifying our message that it’s time for corporations and the wealthy to pay their fair share of taxes. Our message is especially important in light of the devastating cuts that will affect jobs and services across the country if Congress does pass legislation to avert the sequester that goes into effect March 1st.
From Arkansas to New York to Washington state, group members and activists demonstrated the impact that not raising revenue in the deficit debate will have significant, long lasting impacts on states and localities. In addition, some groups demonstrated the absurd tax loopholes that giant corporations take advantage of, while average Americans stand to lose their jobs and have education programs and first responder services in their hometowns cut.
