Occupy and Community Organizing


There is a new Occupy initiative called Occupy – Grassroots (OCGR). Occupy and specifically Occupy Grassroots (OCGR) is part of an organic movement of "people of good will" uniting to impact our culture through organizing, direct action, education, and facilitated communication. The mission is to awaken the hearts and minds of citizens, to create sustainable communities, and to face the critical issues of our day such as climate change and the corporatization of democracy. The ultimate authority in our democracy rests with "We the People". OCGR organizes to awaken our fellow citizens to this reality. OCGR meets via a free conference call the first and third Tuesday of each month at 9:00 pm eastern – 6:00 pm Pacific. . If you would like to join us, please sign-up at the following link: http://myaccount.maestroconference.com/conference/register/YRIC5KXIZZCW6XV8 Our goal is to empower people through local group organizing and strategic action. This is achieved by developing a relationship between the Occupy Movement and the local community organizing model developed by the Wisconsin Grassroots Network (WGN).
