Occupy Philanthropy Call Recording


More than 130 funders participated, clearly indicating the high level of interest in the Occupy moment. Along with others within philanthropy we will continue tracking emerging discussions and calls for social and economic justice being raised by OWS and wider civil society movements in the US and internationally. 

To access a recording of the call, dial 1-712-432-3131 and enter the 16582297 for the access code. 

Best Regards,

Mark and Lola, for FNTG
