Hi! I am Lauren of th Open Forum Subcommittee, part of the Empowerment
and Education Committee.
We have been bringing community organizers, unions, minorities,
immigrants, workers, students and academics, to give talks and lead
discussions at Liberty Square. The Open Forum is at everyday 6pm and
we have some extra editions.
So the Open Forums are going great and we are getting tons of emails
of people that would love to bring educational events to the OWS
movement. The thing is, we are having trouble scheduling because we do
not have enough people to host these events. When we invite someone to
come to the Square, there needs to be somebody of the OWS movement
that can welcome them and assist them.
Hosts meets lecturers at the Square, makes signs for the Open Forum,
makes room for the Open Forum to take place, shushes the drummers,
announces throught human mike that the Open Forum is starting, and
helps facilitate the open discussion after the presentation. It is a
lot of fun, it is an opportunity to meet very inspiring people, and
you will also learn!
We need at least 3 hosts per event (now we usually have 1 and we are
getting really stressed out due to the high number of lectureres that
want to participate)
Please email us if you want to help coordinating these events
You don´t have to do it regularly, just check the nycga.net calendar
and email us if there is an Open Forum that interests you.
