SF poet and poor people's activist, Sarah Menefee, will lead a conversation around the issue of Homelessness & Occupy. Since the beginning of the movement, she has been meeting weekly with a group of homeless occupiers leading a poetry workshop where together they produce a magazine entitled, Occupy Your Visions.

The greatest success of Occupy is said to be the way it has “changed the conversation,” making the discussion of wealth inequality possible again. In this Forum, we would like to examine what insights and motivations are behind this shift of political attention. We will explore the connection between class analysis and fellow feeling, and contrast a politics of envy with a politics of empathy.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
