Executive Director of the Responsible Endowments Coalition
On Wednesday, over ten thousand of people rallied in downtown Manhattan at the #OccupyWallStreet protests now in their third week. On campuses across the country, students walked out of class in solidarity with the occupiers.
It is not hard to tell that young people, including college students and recent graduates, are upset. We are upset that as we graduate we must struggle to find a job. We are angry with the bankers for getting richer after destroying the economy. And we are furious that money from those same bankers and other corporations is stopping our politicians from making the rich pay their fair share.
