On April 14th, New York City will converge on Central Park (by the 6th Ave entrance, on the west side of Wollman Rink) to unite organizations, activists, and others to create a transformative, citywide, mass movement. The day will include Occupy style open space with tabling, teach-ins, food, music, and more! It will also include a structured assembly for organizers from various organizations across the city to network and coordinate. This will be a day to revitalize, strategize, and kick-off the spring with a major focus on openness to new-comers, invigorating local GAs, further developing inter-organizational relationships, celebrating, and together building power for the spring, summer, and beyond.
The event will officially begin at 1pm with an open space format perhaps quite similar to recent Town Square events. While the open space continues, at 3pm, a facilitated assembly will convene for those interested in serious citywide organizing and interactive movement building. This will not be a decision-making body. It will open with several short, rallying speeches and followed by discussion and planning of strategic vision for the next 3-6 months. Finally, concluding with another round of short, inspirational speeches and, no doubt, dancing into the night.
