In November, Care2 joined a dozen other organizations to partner with Brave New Foundation in order to educate the public on the One Percent. Occupy Wall Street and its variations around the world changed the country’s debate from deficits to income inequality. It started to highlight the difficulties of the 99 percent, but left the people benefiting from wrecking the economy unknown.
The project aimed to educate the public and voters helped narrow it down to the five worst people in the one percent. The first installment comes in five parts and are only a minute long but the facts speak for themselves.

Who should they feature in the second installment?
