Washington, D.C.-- On May 17, thousands of everyday Americans from across the country will converge on Washington, D.C. for a series of demonstrations to expose the Wall Street, corporate, and anti-immigrant interests fighting key reforms, their lobbyists, and the members of Congress who do their bidding. Wall Street CEOs alone are spending more than $1.4 million a day fighting Wall Street reform and have hired more than 1,500 lobbyists.

Many of the workers, family farmers, clergy, and activists descending on Washington, D.C. recently participated in a week of actions across the country to hold Wall Street accountable. More than 10,000 people marched on Wall Street banks in San Francisco, Kansas City, Chicago, Charlotte, and on Wall Street.
