Spring Training begins

Spring is a time of renewal and what better way to celebrate renewal than to participate in the 99 Percent Spring. The 99 Percent Spring is the renewal of the 99 percent movement that got started in Tunisia in January 2011; came to the US via Wisconsin in February 2011, and took off nationally last fall  with the Occupy movement.

Spring training for the 99 Percent Spring begins Monday April 9 and runs through Sunday April 15. Training will take place in at least 30 sites in Texas. Here’s a partial list below.
