Picture the Homeless
On May 12, Picture the Homeless was there.
On Thursday May 12, 2011, Picture the Homeless joined 20,000 of our closest friends to converge in a unique and inspiring action in the heart of the financial world – Wall Street.
The Big Banks crashed our economy. They destroyed jobs, foreclosed on millions of homes, and wrecked city and state budgets across the country. Yet they get trillions in taxpayer funded bailouts, while Wall Street makes billions in profits and giving away record bonuses to CEOs.
And our communities are still hurting. Here in New York City, tens of thousands have lost their homes and their jobs. Billionaire Mayor Mike Bloomberg is proposing devastating budget cuts as the only solution to the economic crisis that Wall Street caused. That's why we marched.
