Occupy DC / UDC-DCSL Community Networking and Social Event
Food, Music, Poetry, Conversation
Friday, January 27
5 - 8 PM
UDC David A. Clarke School of Law
4340 Connecticut Ave., NW
Washington, DC 20008
We here at UDC's law school recognize that we share many of the same principles of the Occupy movement, and believe that our collaboration would be the perfect bridge between two visions for a better society. While Occupy DC represents this generation’s frustration and disillusionment with the status-quo, the law school embodies several decades of struggle for systemic change and the betterment of conditions for low-income DC residents. UDC's law school has historical knowledge of issues affecting DC communities, resources, and legal expertise that may bolster the outburst of creative, passionate energy that Occupy DC exemplifies.
The potential for change we think the Occupy Movement represents begins with conversations and dialogue about what kind of world we want to see, as well as community and coalition building. This is exactly what we hope to achieve with this event.
We plan on having food, live music, creative and artistic expression, and focused discussions that aim to answer questions, address concerns, cover issues we are passionate about, and form relationships and steps we can take to turn our visions into reality.
