Occupy The Hood
The growth of a community campaign that joins the Occupy Wall Street protests, representing minorities. It started as a twitter profile (@OccupyTheHood), and grew from there.
From a statement on their Facebook page:
It is the Mission of Occupy The Hood (in solidarity with Occupy Wall St) to get POC more involved in the Occupy Movement
Occupy The Hood stands in Solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street
movement… It is imperative that the African American voice is heard
at this moment! We must not be forgotten as the world progresses to the next economical stage. We can all agree that the voices in our
communities are especially needed in this humanitarian struggle. We
are our future and we posses the energy needed to push the occupy
movement to the next phase.
