Occupy.com is …a work in progress.

We are a new kind of media channel that amplifies the voices of the 99%. We use News and Media as our tool to call for social, economic and environmental justice. We seek to inspire resistance, engagement and the creation of the new world we imagine.

Occupy.com is an open invitation to creators of every stripe: journalists, musicians, photographers, painters, filmmakers, poets, designers, developers, cartoonists, podcasters – every genre, form and style. We are building an open platform, where everyone can post and everyone can curate. In the meanwhile, we're curating the content ourselves. We’re developing the site one step at time. 

We are an independent non-profit (we have applied for our 501-c). We consist of a small but growing group of dedicated staff working in solidarity with the movement. We are supported by a combination of donations and volunteerism. There is no GA or Spokes Council overseeing us, but we are morally accountable to the values of the Occupy movement as a whole.
