*Occupy Eugene People of Color Working Group Meetup TODAY*

Back-lit by recent facebook discussions and the visible lack of people of color in our Occupy Eugene movement, a working group which at this stage will be made up of people of color (poc) will come together for discussion.
*Occupy Eugene People of Color Working Group Meetup TODAY*

Back-lit by recent facebook discussions and the visible lack of people of color in our Occupy Eugene movement, a working group which at this stage will be made up of people of color (poc) will come together for discussion.

This is not an attempt to ultimately separate from the movement; it is a space to address sensitive issues which often come up when poc choose to organize within predominantly non-poc organizations, movements, etc. The hope is to build a broader and larger Occupy Eugene movement.

If you navigate your world as a person of color and are interested in this movement please come to an informal discussion this evening Tuesday, October 11 @ 5:30 pm @ Cozmic Pizza at the corner of 8th & Charnelton in downtown Eugene, Oregon!

This is really short notice so please spread the word. ALLY assistance in spreading the word about this meetup would be GREATLY appreciated!
