Thinking Strategically About Occupy Together

So, this Occupy Together movement is definitely a thing. It’s potentially a really big thing. And what’s particularly cool about it is that it’s full of people who are new to activism and organizing.

For those of us who’ve been around for awhile, this presents a challenge. How do we avoid sticking our noses up at the movement’s various mistakes and contradictions, and actually join in and meaningfully support what’s happening?

With my life so over-capacity right now, it’s been hard to think about how to best contribute…but one answer I have is writing. I can at least share some of the ideas and questions that I’m asking to help generate more strategic thinking.

So, get ready for a series of posts trying to think strategically about Occupy Together!
