If you have yet to investigate your local Occupy, I strongly encourage that you do so. There are a myriad of resources where you can learn more about Occupy Wall Street and how you can plug into the movement:
- nycga.net - the home of NY-based Occupy Wall Street Working Groups
- occupy.com - good aggregation of Occupy content, including videos, articles, and music
- occupy.net - provides people with open-source software tools that align with the values of Occupy
- Occupy Together - Find your local Occupy
- May Day General Strike! - No Work. No School. No Housework. No Shopping. Take the Streets!
If you are interested in donating to the movement, I recommend considering the following:
- National Lawyer's Guild (NLG) - The NLG has been essential to OWS, providing lawyers to activists arrested for peaceful protest. They also work to defend political prisoners and to provide support for prisoners through the Prison Law Project. To learn more about the NLG's work, see this excellent piece by Allison Kilkenny.
- May Day Legal Expense Fund - A fund created and operated autonomously by members of the Legal, Jail Support and Accounting Working Groups of Occupy Wall Street. Funds will go towards the costs of legal expenses for Occupy Wall Street and May Day activists.
