Occupy Together exists solely to help organize, publicize, and support the growing number of communities that are showing support for the Occupy Wall St. movement. We don’t have any other agenda outside of this. We stand by the developing mission of Occupy Wall St., but we are not representatives for Occupy Wall St. WHY WE ARE DOING THIS
As we watched the continuing marches on Wall St. over the internet and many across the nation reacting to the movement, we decided to set up a website and social media networks to provide a hub for those organizing in various states across the country. Many of us cannot be there with our brothers and sisters in NYC and, like us, wanted to do something. Occupy Together was our way of participating in these events, in spirit and solidarity, in order to support those organizing and demonstrating in various cities and states across America. ABOUT US
We are two graphic designers in Lincoln, NE who desperately wanted to be in NYC but, because of financial and life responsibilities, are not able to attend. Both of us are politically and socially minded individuals who want to help make a positive difference. We have now grown to four Nebraska-based volunteers, as well as two national volunteers helping to maintain these sites. CONTACT US
The best way to contact us is through our email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Unfortunately, comments on both facebook, twitter, and our site have easily become buried, so if you have important information, please contact us via email. IMPORTANT WEBSITES
****WARNING***** WHAT YOU WILL NOT SEE FROM US
We will not ask for or receive donations for this group, we are strictly volunteer and here solely to help the cause and those organizing across the country. You will not see ads from us or any other attempt to make money off of this movement. It is unfortunate that others have been using our name and this cause to profit but, sadly, not surprising. ******************** WAYS TO HELP 1. Get down to Liberty Plaza and participate in Occupy Wall St. 2. Donate to our brothers and sisters via http://nycga.cc/?page_id=377 3.
