The way to do it is take a list of change demands, turn it into an on-line petition so that millions of people will sign it, and then send it to Congress and the President. Then you will have to be prepared to "dog it" through sit-ins and other 60s-style protest efforts in order to get media attention. This requires a long, sustained effort of protests in Washington.
The movement requires some type of representative or liaison (notice I didn't say leader) to represent the movement's demands and serve as a point of communication with Congress and the President. Without this, there is no way to coordinate communication at the human level that is required for any effective interactions with Congress/President.
The KEY effort is continued peaceful protests by as many people as possible in support of the demands. Politicians and Corporations will then see that OWS is not something that will eventually loose momentum and quietly fade away. The movement will then start to gain MORE momentum instead of less as politicians realize that people are in it for the long haul. Just imagine what would happen if determined citizens occupied the steps of the Capital building in Washington, in mass, for not just weeks or months, but years if necessary, and ABSOLUTELY REFUSED to ever go away until the demands were met.
That is the way to do it.
