Today: Elders From Civil Rights Movement Pass The Torch To Occupy Wall Street At Liberty Square


Today Elders from the Civil Right's Movement will be sharing the torch of social justice and equality with the Occupy Wall Street movement — a symbolic act by which they recognize OWS as the transformative movement of the 21st Century. 

“We see Occupy Wall Street as a continuation, a deepening and expansion of the determination of the diverse peoples of our nation to transform our country into a more democratic, equitable, just, and compassionate society,” excerpt from the statement of solidarity by the Council of Elders to be read at each of the Occupy encampments. By bringing their voices to the Occupy Wall Street movement, the elders will be addressing a litany of social grievances, including poverty, mass incarceration, and what they call a culture of war and violence.

Today, Sunday, Nov. 20:
• 3:30pm: Interfaith Service led by the Elder Council at Liberty Square.  They will symbolically pass the torch of hope and social justice to OWS.
• 5:30pm: Conversation between the Elder Council members and OWS at Judson Memorial Church.  Open to the general public - discussing space, liberation and race.
• 7:00-7:30pm: Gathering at Washington Square Park for a candle light vigil march / action to Duarte Park. 

On the heals of the 17th National Action Day, today will be a day of nonviolent, spiritual and powerful gathering in solidarity.
