Delivering “Show You Care” Packages to Tax-Avoiding Executives


On March 14 Stand Up! Chicago delivered care packages with a message for tax-avoiding corporate executives: *Show You Care, Pay Your Fair Share!* 300 Chicagoans rallied in front of the Chicago headquarters of JP Morgan Chase and Exelon—and the exclusive Commercial Club—with colorful oversized gift boxes. The action continued with a march to the Chicago Board of Trade and a short rally addressing CME executives Terrence Duffy and Craig Donohue. After discovering that the two executives were at a Futures Industry conference at an exclusive Florida resort, Stand Up! later mailed the two smaller “Show You Care” packages with a heartfelt message from working families asking that the two millionaires pay their fair share of both personal and corporate taxes.
