Several grassroots organizations have teamed up to create a cultural arts activism project in L.A.'s Miracle Mile, and they need your help, L.A. "All in for the 99%" has sent out a city-wide call for Angelenos to come out this Saturday to pose for an aerial photo shoot of our local 99% en masse. The shoot is part of an all-day "All in for the 99%" public art exhibition to raise awareness about the issues surrounding the 99% movement.

Sponsored by Rebuild the Dream, Civic Action, Courage Campaign, and SEIU, this community building arts event features a packed schedule. Attendees can partake in curated DJ sets, activist training sessions, short film screenings, readings from Slake narrative journalists, an address by Van Jones, and performances by Val Kilmer as Mark Twain and Vicci Martinez as herself. Artworks by 80 different artists will be for sale around the festival as well.

"All in for the 99%" is part of Rebuild the Dream's larger revival series to sustain the national dialogue about income inequality and a protective income agenda.

The free event, located at 440 South La Brea Avenue, runs from 10:30am to 6:30pm, with the aerial group photo shoot at 11am. Scheduling and other information can be found on the group's website, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
