#OWS, pepper spray, book sharing, tents, mic checks and protest signs: Since September, the Occupy movement has staked a claim in every Facebook feed, almost every news program and in literally more than 100 major cities in the United States alone. Using the tools of collective assembly, occupiers have mobilized thousands in their fight for global change and against the richest 1 percent, but so many people are still less than sure what Occupy is all about. What have been the strategies and intent of this people-powered movement? Now that they have the world’s attention, what are they going to do with it? What is driving the movement forward?

Join us for a 2-hour forum, including a panel discussion with Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and Occupy leaders to tackle the what, why and future of Occupy’s mission to channel change. Then we’ll get our own Occupy on, with a break out discussion and resolution reception.

Time: 6:30 p.m. check-In, 7 p.m. program, 8 p.m. breakout discussion groups, reception and report back
