Occupy the Board Room
Flickr Pool Picks

Over two dozen progressive organizations have joined forces to launch Occupy the Board Room, a virtual adjunct to Occupy Wall Street. The idea is summed up this way: "The 1% have addresses. The 99% have messages."

You get two ways of communicating to banking executives and board members who may not have, let's say, gotten the message yet. You can 'find a pen pal' and simply tell them a story that you think they need to hear. Or you can 'find a BFF'—for that, humor and creativity is encouraged. Occupy the Board Room says they will print and deliver every message.

Some of the local groups involved include Alliance for a Greater New York, Citizen Action of NY, NY Communities for Change, NY Working Families, United NY, and Vocal New York. You can browse messages that have already been posted here.
