Films of Vision and Hope – December 2 and 9
Occupy Wall Street — What’s Happened? What’s Next?
Occupy Wall Street has captured the imagination of millions and brought a level social activism not seen in the U.S. for decades. How did it start? What’s happened so far? What are the implications, and what can we do locally to get involved?
We’ll explore all of this at this Films of Vision and Hope mini-series.
Friday, December 2 – The Best of Occupy Videos
