It's that time again. Time to catch up, share what we are all working on, establish connections, coordinate and figure out how we can help each other. It is time for the 2nd People’s Assembly! Individuals and groups who are doing any type of organizing (within or outside of Occupy DC) are asked to come out and provide information on what it is you are doing. We are also asking that everyone who is at all interested in hearing what is going on and/or wants to learn how they can plug in come out as well. Basically, we want to see all of you beautiful people again and look forward to seeing a bunch of new faces!
What does it mean to have no papers and no fear? Come hear from the authors of Undocumented and Unafraid and learn how "Dreamers" came to lead the new immigrant youth movement many are calling the civil rights movement of our time.

Undocumented and Unafraid is written by and about undocumented youth. Hear their stories, read their words, and get your copy signed at this event!
