About

Occupy.com is a News and media channel amplifying the voices of the global 99%. We use news, analyses, music, video, photography and graphics to heighten awareness and inspire engagement for social, economic and environmental justice.

We are an open invitation to creators of every type: journalists, musicians, photographers, painters, filmmakers, poets, designers, developers, cartoonists, podcasters – every genre, form and style is welcome.

Our companion site, the Commons (http://commons.occupy.com) – is an online community created for the 99%, to make communication, collaboration and coordination easy for readers and activists around the world. It is a tool for creating grassroots power, helping connect us with one another. Join us on the Commons, so we can build powerful movements that fight for economic and social justice.

Occupy.com is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We consist of a small, dedicated group of journalists, editors, designers and developers. We are supported by a combination of tax-deductible 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.
