The 99Spring Movement Awakens Americans

My 99 Spring DEF: It’s not about parties, it’s not about race or religion, it’s not about DEM vs REP. It’s about empowering your voice, and grouping up for more support and momentum. (That’s why I’m here.)

You don’t have to believe or align yourself with the Occupy Wall Street movement to understand that the 1% (maybe really the top 5% of the 1%) really wield the power in the US. Today I participated in a training session put on by the99Spring.com. Please check out the site and see if there is something there for you. According to local organizers there are 700+ 99Spring Groups meeting across America.

The training in Austin is at Ventana Del Soul. And you need to learn about them as well. This is a fantastic non-profit facility and restaurant that is training people and helping people with life work, and work skills.

And one of the exercises we did, was to design our ideal city by drawing a map of what we wanted. Here is my group’s city: “Dignity City.”
