Organizing Neighbors / Fighting Foreclosures
Monday, June 25, 6:00 PM
Women’s Building, 3543 18th St
(betw. Valencia & Guerrero, # 33 bus)

The issues remain the same but the way Occupy is going about its work has changed. Gone for now is the large and constant presence in public spaces. Occupy has moved into the neighborhoods and is organizing people where they live and around the issues that are close to home. In the Bay Area, Occupy Bernal, which has delayed some and stopped other foreclosures, is a shining example of the benefits and successes of this tactic. To start our conversation about organizing neighbors, Stardust, from Occupy Bernal, will share his experiences with fighting foreclosures and neighborhood organizing.

Stardust is a San Francisco writer, teacher, and musician who has been an activist for 30 years in causes including housing rights, draft registration resistance, waging peace, LGBT rights, women’s rights, including the right to an abortion, civil rights, voting rights, free speech, preventing Internet censorship, and universal health care. Stardust has an MBA from Golden Gate University and a BS in Writing and Computer Science from MIT. He is a founder of the nonprofit Online Policy Group.

Occupy Forum will be a regular Monday night Occupy SF event, at the same time and place.
