Mission Statement: “We are part of the Occupy Wall Street movement, and we peacefully assemble to stand up for the 99% in order to regain our livelihoods, futures, a healthy society and a functional government that benefits the majority of citizens rather than the 1% elite.”
We felt it was important to have an Occupy movement in the beautiful capital of Nevada which is Carson City, part of the Lake Tahoe region. We meet weekly and organize bi-monthly events and work with other progressive groups in our region. We do not advocate anarchy, but seek to improve our democracy with a healthy balance of properly regulated capitalistic and socialistic elements. We commit ourselves to peaceful demonstrations and to non-violent civil disobedience when needed in the heroic spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi. We are a mix of all ages and multiple generations.
