Tags: occupy sandy, people's recovery summit, 99 pickets, events, nyc

From February 1st to the 3rd people from across the grassroots community--organizers, volunteers, activists and storm-impacted residents--will meet at The People’s Recovery Summit to address how we can rebuild a stronger, fairer and more sustainable New York City together.

How do we strengthen access to good public schools for our children? How do we rebuild sustainably and equitably? How can we best organize our relief networks before the next time we need them? How do we make our communities healthier places?

Join us this weekend to explore these questions and participate in workshops, listen to speeches, attend trainings, share meals, hear music and help draft a unified people’s recovery statement. Restore power to the people - a better future is in our hands!

What tough situation, how to move forward. It seems like the forum has no sway? If only people in attendance have sway, the results may not be as ideal versus also including a place on the forum to consider ideas.
