We invite the diverse community of Jackson Heights, Queens, and all of New York City, to the Occupy Queens (Jackson Heights) meeting.

The people who live in our communities are rich in their diversity, backgrounds, experiences, and in their culture. This mix of culture is what is needed in the Occupy Queens (Jackson Heights) General Assembly, so that the sensibilities and the actions that are taken by the General Assembly actually have resonance with the community, and can reflect the issues, priorities, and emergencies that our diverse community experiences.

In this assembly this issue takes on even more urgency because Jackson Heights is over 80% of color but few of those members choose to participate in this Assembly. This has been a issue with most community based Occupies in New York City and with Occupy Wall Street itself. Occupy Queens will be among the first of any assembly to take this issue head on. However this is but one item on the agenda of this Assembly and there are many more, so we invite any and all who’d like to see Occupy grow in diverse communities to attend.

Please join us. Please invite your friends. Please share this on your Facebook pages.
