As you likely know, OWS was raided last night. Social workers, counselors, healers and other good people and supporters of the OWS efforts are needed to help this community heal. Here's two requests I have of you all to help in this effort. Please forward widely.
Provide Emotional Support for Occupiers
First, a request of the counselors/good listeners on this list with time to spare today. There are urgent needs to support OWS arrestees and evicted occupiers around trauma and existing emotional issues today, all in lower Manhattan. If you are available to help out, please email me off list and let me know when you're available and I will get back to you. You can also text me at 646.705.4415
(no calls please).
Providing Safe Spaces for ArresteesLive in New York City? Want to support the Liberty Plaza arrestees? We are looking for safe spaces where folk who have been arrested can go after they are released to rest, tend their wounds, take a shower, have a meal, etc. If you can offer your house, call Hannah at 802.359.3628. Tell us how many people you can have over, for how long, where you live, and a return number. Thanks!
