About the Class

Finally, a Primer on the Occupy Movement

The Occupy movement is both inspiring and confusing. This class will cover: What is Occupy? How is it structured? What do Occupiers want? What does the future hold?

And above all, what’s the best way to get involved?

Maybe you came down to the park and didn’t know exactly what to do next. Or you just want someone to explain how it all works, once and for all. I’ve been involved since the second week, navigating the working groups, figuring out the process, and engaging with the culture of it. I’ve also been doing my damnedest to explain the movement to people in the clearest possible terms, whether in person or through videos. Now I’m working hard on creating a media site for the movement on occupy.com.

I am passionate about what is going on. And I am adamant that we as occupiers need to do a better job of talking about it. I look forward to the opportunity.

All proceeds from the class will go toward building out the website occupy.com, a new 501(c)3 .

David Sauvage has been involved with Occupy Wall Street from the second week. A filmmaker by trade, he directed a series of commercials for the movement that have been or will be on TV. He has since been working with Occupy Wall Street’s PR Group and Messaging Cluster. Recently, a supporter of the movement bought the domain occupy.com and entrusted David to launch what is on track to become “the front door for the movement.” His work for Occupy has been featured in Salon, the Atlantic Monthly, Adage, MSNBC, the Huffington Post and Slate.
