STRIKE DEBT MEMBER ANN LARSON TO SPEAK AT OB COMMUNITY GATHERING ABOUT DEBT ON MONDAY 11/19
Last night Strike Debt, an off-shoot of Occupy Wall Street, had a telethon in NYC to raise funds for their Rolling Jubilee Campaign. For every dollar raised, they could buy and cancel $20 of distressed medical debt. The total raised was in excess of $280,000. Occupy Boston (on vote of GA) contributed $500 (the means to cancel $10,000 in debt). The Rolling Jubilee is one of several very exciting projects of Strike Debt.

This Monday, November 19, Strike Debt member Ann Larson will speak at the Occupy Boston Community Gathering about Debt. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about their project, principles and campaigns, and to think about what kinds of actions and campaigns we can do in Boston about debt. The meeting will include time for interactive discussions on issues and action planning.
The details: 6-9:30 p.m. (dinner at 6) at Community Church of Boston, 565 Boylston St, Boston (in Copley Square). For more information email: firstname.lastname@example.org
