Last fall, the occupy movement amplified the voices of the 99% around the country, and in doing so literally changed the national conversation. In October, two filmmakers uploaded a 30 second video to YouTube with voices from Occupy Wall St, and then it was posted on the crowdfunding advertising platform LoudSauce, and 168 people pledged mostly $25 each, placing that ad on national television. 3.2 million viewers were reached with a message straight from occupiers themselves. It even aired during Fox News's O'Reilly Factor.

With the 2012 political campaign season underway, the national dialogue is again being controlled by the super wealthy. The 1% is channeling its voice powerfully through Super PACs, funded with an average donation of $88,000.

So this spring, let's re-awaken the nation not only in public spaces, but also through the country's television sets. Filmmakers, activists, and people like you are creating and sharing 30-second spots capturing a message from the streets, a condemnation of the status quo, and a vision of what's possible if we come together as a people.
