Vision Statement

Our vision is to build a Beloved Community that constantly pursues (aspires to) collective liberation by progressively eliminating and challenging systems of internal, interpersonal and cultural oppression, that are manifested in race, class, gender, sexual identity, and physical, cultural and religious domination.

We envision that we can accomplish this by employing an intergenerational, inclusive and intersectional practice that holds its members accountable to a set of liberatory anti-oppressive values. Our vision is for the practices learned and applied in our community [this working group] to become a transformative catalyst agent for the rest of the occupy movement and our communities at large.
