Jim Dean: “The folks in the streets represent our best hope to save America from Wall Street and to restore the American Dream." 


 Burlington, VT – Jim Dean, Chair of Democracy for America on Occupy Wall Street:
"We are inspired by Occupy Wall Street and grateful to the many DFA members who are participating in New York and in similar actions around the country. Big business, especially the largest investment banks, has failed our economy, our democracy, and our country," Jim Dean express.

"They have also failed the very free market principles that created them by rewarding incompetence and ignoring accountability. What was once an innovative engine of capital formation is nothing but a casino led by gamblers who can’t be trusted with the hard-earned money of working Americans," he wrote
"Make no mistake: the folks in the streets represent our best hope to save America from Wall Street and to restore the American Dream." 
DFA member participation in Occupy Wall Street:
  • 300 DFA Members attended the Occupy Wall Street march on Oct. 5 led by local group Democracy for New York City (DFNYC)
  • 4,288 DFA members from around the country donated online to buy blankets and sleeping bags for the occupiers in New York City
