Come celebrate a year of Occupy in Frederick! On the anniversary of Occupy Frederick’s very first action we’re getting together with our friends and comrades to reflect on the ups and downs of the year’s activity, and to discuss the future of radical/progressive organizing in the community.
After the discussion we’ll switch to party mode with a potluck, music, and drinks for those of us of age.
All are welcome; organizers, allies, participants, supporters, and anyone interested in movements for social change/curious about organizing for social justice in Frederick are encouraged to attend (the more the merrier!).
