How do I get involved with the Occupy Movement?
No matter how much time or how many resources you have access to, you are an asset to this people-driven movement. It takes all of us working together to create change. Below is a list of ways you can become involved.
Become involved in a local encampment or general assembly
Search for one at [www.occupytogether.org/actions, map.squaresdatabase.org, ect] There will usually be an Info or Welcome Tent at an encampment you can visit to learn more about what is going on or meet other Occupiers. You can come to a General Assembly to observe or participate. A facilitator will help explain the assembly process before it starts.
Join a working group or committee
Working groups help the GA operate. A working group is a set of people working together on a specific goal or task. This is a great way to contribute your talents to the movement. Typical working groups are: Media, Direct Action, Facilitation, Arts & Culture, Food, Medical, Comfort. The working groups for each GA will vary depending on makeup. Often times, you can find meeting times and information on the local GA's website. This is something you can also find out by visiting a Welcome or Info Tent at an encampment.
Contribute your time from home
There are many people who don't live close enough or have the means or ability to visit or become physically involved in a general assembly but want to find a way to help. There are many affinity groups and GAs that could use your virtual help to keep things running. Data entry, social media management, copy-editing, web development, and correspondence are just a few examples of ways you can help from afar. You can do this by contributing to wiki documentation. [volunteer network link? – I thought someone had mentioned this, but I don't know what the link is]
Become a part of the conversation
There are general national calls each week facilitated by InterOccupy.org. Anyone is welcome to join to share ideas and network with others.
Donate money or supplies
Here is a growing list of general assemblies and affinity groups accepting donations online:  Consider donating supplies to a local encampment. I may be able to find a list of needs on your local GA's website.
