Four Years Since Taking to the Streets, Tax March Keeps Fighting for a People-First Economy
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today marks four years since the inaugural Tax March, when more than 125,000 people marched in cities across the country to demand fairness and transparency from our country’s highest leadership.
Tax March Executive Director Maura Quint commemorated the anniversary:
“In four years, Tax March has transformed from a demonstration of outrage against a corrupt despot to a powerful, populist movement for economic justice—and our movement grows stronger every day. Today, Americans overwhelmingly support taxing the rich, reining in corporate power, amplifying worker power, and ensuring the wealthy contribute their fair share to our country.
“That’s why Tax March is fighting to hold corporations like FedEx accountable and demanding they pay their fair share of taxes. That’s why we’re fighting for workers to earn fair wages and to end the austerity politics that have devastated the American working class in the last 40 years. It’s time for lawmakers to deliver a prosperous economy by enacting policies that put the people first, and this movement is going to keep fighting harder each day to ensure an economic future where all people have the opportunity to live and thrive.”

About Tax March

Tax March is a grassroots movement fighting for a fairer and more equitable tax code, and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. Our organizers across the nation advocate in their communities and in Washington for policies to tax the rich and invest in middle and working class communities. During the coronavirus pandemic, we are calling on Congress and the White House to deliver direct relief to working families, tax the billionaires and big corporations whose wealth has skyrocketed, and rebuild a stronger, more equitable economy. Join the movement on Twitter and Facebook, or visit us at TaxMarch.org.
