WELCOME! to OCCUPATION BOSTON's "Participate" Page. Here you will find ways to join in!


Contents

Find a meeting

Go to the Calendar produced by Media working group. (Click the agenda tab, it is much more readable then). This calendar agenda is also on the right side of the http://occupyboston.org main site. Be sure to attend a General Assembly to 'see what democracy looks like' and help to develop a consensus. General Assemblies are usually at 7:00 PM on Tuesday and Thursday and 5:00 on Saturday and Sunday, but they are in flux after the recent eviction, so check the Calendar to be sure.

Volunteer


There is also an Outreach committee for people to help spread the message and make contacts with other organizations.

Join a working group

Working groups meet at the Occupy Boston site and/or work remotely. They all have a presence on the internet with their own email listserves, pages on this wiki, twitter feeds, facebook pages, and other communication outlets.

At camp, check the lists posted by the Logistics Tent. (When you first walk into the Occupy Boston camp in Dewey Square from the South Station side you see on your left the Logistics tent.)
To donate money, the main occupy Boston website at http://occupyboston.org is the place to go. Currently on the right hand side are lists of various funds that have been set up for donations and links to an easy way to make donations.
