Occupy San Jose
City Hall Plaza
4th & Santa Clara
San Jose, CA
We have started to notice that within our midst at Occupy San Jose there are lots of experienced activists. Tuesday Talks is a series of informal testimonials and discussions with activists from within OSJ and the broader San Jose community. The talks begin with a featured activist sharing his/her personal testimonial. They will talk about what brought them to activism, what they have been involved with over the years, and what they have learned about strategies of resistance and organizing. The testimonials are followed by an open discussion about activism in which people can share their own experiences and raise questions.
THIS WEEK: You may have met or seen Shaunn around at the occupation. She is a regular overnight occupier, and as it turns out has been an activist since her college days when she got involved in organizing political groups on her campus and programs for feeding the homeless. Come meet Shaunn as she kicks off the series for us.
Note: We will be sitting together on the ground. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring something to sit on if needed.
