Occupy Movement Takes On Elementary School Closures

If there was ever a more certain need for the work of the CLE, the People's School For Public Education would seem to fit the bill!

Day Two

Begins with a breakfast taco and set up for the day.  

Last night we had an amazing evening and it was great to see everyone talking and connecting even after the event.  A few teams hit the town, some headed back to the hotel.  Our local team closed up shop and debriefed about the day.

Sunrise this morning was excellent and I am anticipating a beautiful day to continue the work.

This morning we outlined the process and set the space.  Dale and Monica…
