More info from Amber:

How do we maintain and demonstrate solidarity with others as we organize across difference? How do we assess different risk levels in our organizing? How do we participate without being co-opted or whitewashed? On Monday we’ll meet @ LOL (1234 23rd ave) to discuss our experiences within occupy. Women, queers, poc and others welcome. Amber Kelsie will be recording people who choose to share their experiences.
