Hey Everyone --
Great news: the faith community is starting to come out in support of our movement.
James at Catholics United and Jessie at Faith in Public Life, as well as Michael Ellick at Judson Memorial Church, are meeting tomorrow at Washington Sq at 2 pm and taking a golden calf down to Zucotti Park for a 3:30 pm prayer service. (To those without a religious background, the golden calf is a symbol of greed and materialism run amok. )
Can we help feature this awesome idea with video and on our social media? I think it will really help us demonstrate a face of this movement that lots of folks haven't seen yet.
Jessie and James: Justin runs our twitter and Katie plans our video projects.
In solidarity -

Thanks so much for your help! We have advised to press but could definitely use help with social media and also filming the event, if you are able. James is tweeting photos from @CatholicsUnited. His cell is (202) 246-2583. The plan is to meet at Judson Memorial Church on Washington Sq Park at 2 pm and take the calf down to Zucotti Park for the 3:30 pm prayer service. The pastor at Judson, Michael Ellick, is helping coordinate.
Also they were looking for help printing signs (I will forward to you) if that's something you can help with!
Thanks so much again,
Hey James and Jessie -
I'm so excited about the Golden Calf idea. Do you want us to do any press / social media around it? Have you been in touch with folks here about it? We are very excited to work with communities of faith and bring them into this movement. We are hosting a service on Sunday the 23rd, and we'd love to find a way for you to take part.

James & Jessie -- putting my MoveOn hat on for a second, I wanted to electronically introduce you to Max Berger of Rebuild the Dream. Max is RTD's point person at the occupation in NYC, spending a bunch of time there and getting to know to folks on the ground. He's also working with the folks at Auburn on a church service for next Sunday.
Max -- James Salt is ED of Catholics United, who built and brought the golden calf up to NYC. Jessica Barba Brown is VP at Faith in Public Life and has been coordinating things from DC.
I'm not sure what the current state of play & needs are for the event tomorrow, but I figured you guys might find it helpful to have each other's emails.
