If the 99% movement had an outstanding issue, it was defining themselves.  The "All in for the 99%" hopes to change that on March 31 by showcasing art, music, and cultural activism that speaks to the 99%. "All in for the 99%" will be hosted by Rebuild the Dream, MoveOn.org Civic Action, Courage Campaign and the SEIU.

The event will feature a one hour film program curated by Funny or Die as well as discussions presented by quarterly Slake: Los Angeles, which celebrates long narrative journalism.  A gallery show will also feature works by 80 artists including Robbie Conal, Kimberly Brooks, Chris Johanson and Johanna Jackson.

Want to be part of the numbers?  The movement is calling all Angelenos to "come make a human 99% for an aerial photo this Saturday, March 31 at 11 AM." For more information, visit All in for the 99% here.
