Welcome to Outreach

The Mission of the Occupy Wall Street Outreach Working Group is to engage, educate and mobilize individuals, communities, and organizations in the struggle to end austerity measures and build a society rooted in consensus-building, horizontal decision-making, and economic justice for all.

  • Tabling throughout New York City with information on economic inequality, the New York City General Assembly, and Occupy Wall Street
  • Assisting with the printing and distribution of OWS-related literature and materials
  • Speaking face-to-face with individuals about the principles of OWS and how to get involved, via orientation sessions, Occupy Town Squares, Subway Storytelling, etc.
  • Developing and maintaining contact lists and communication with local organizations and general assemblies
  • Arranging teach-ins and other community building activities with community-based organizations and local general assemblies
  • Helping to plan, promote, and mobilize for Occupy Wall Street events and Direct Actions
