QUESTION: Tax Inequality Graphs for flyers

question / pregunta: 

I need graphs for the back of flyers that will reproduce comprehensibly in BLACK AND WHITE of information illustrating how the tax code benefits the wealthy. Going the extra mile would be giving them to me in two sizes, one that would print on the back of a quarter page flyer for the 5:30 rally at Dewey Sq., Boston, MA, Occupy Boston. Topics; the carried interest loohole for hedgefund managers, hedgfund managers, compliance, taxes and prosperity under Eisenhower, tax rates on the wealthy falling during prosperous times....I hope you get the idea. The big pay off would be if you could track down a green chart that circulated on Facebook, a family budget broken down as if it were the federal tax system.

THE SOONER THE BETTER. THANKS.

Charles Willett 1932-2012

I want to acknowledge the passing of longtime librarian/activist Charles M. Willett. Charles founded the Civic Media Center in Gainesville, Florida and Counterpoise (alternative library review journal) & Librarians at Liberty magazines. Once a collection development librarian, one of Charles's great passions was getting alternative press publications into libraries. I forget the exact (contentious) history*, but Charles was also involved in the Alternatives in Print [now Alternative Media] task force of SRRT/ALA. There's a lot more that could be said about Charles and his accomplishments. Here is how The Gainesville Sun put it:

Hello,

Can you provide some information, insight or links to national or international progressive organizations who focus on advocating for public libraries. Most of what seems most readily available is local "Friends of the X Library." What I'm looking for is a more progressive or political point of view, e.g. libraries as public space and essential public assets/goods, libraries as places for building community and citizenship, etc. Thanks for your help.
