Congrats to Erie Occupy (our 100th city visited in June 2012) who celebrated their one-year anniversary and welcomed the V and our OTR team in great fashion and with much fervor despite it being a cold, rainy day.  About 55-60 occupiers turned out for the celebration, with lively music and refreshments served. Purpose and focus were renewed as they vowed to continue their occupation activities into the foreseeable future. Enjoy these photos of the Erie Occupiers and give them a hearty hello shout–we’re all in this effort together! (more…)

Yesterday we took a day off to celebrate with our new Erie friends in the park. The media came down to cover the story and cover it they did. We were the leading story that then went into the previous event today, a protest against budget cuts affecting people with disabilities. (more…)
