The Community Plug-in Committee seeks to form mutually beneficial relationships between Occupy Oakland and grassroots community groups in the Bay Area, with a focus on Oakland. Through these relationships, we hope to better our community and empower people from all over Oakland to do the same. Our work includes:
1. Coordinating volunteer efforts between Occupy Oakland and community groups.
2. Representing Occupy Oakland in neighborhoods that currently feel disconnected from the movement.
3. Communicating the desires of groups that are underrepresented within Occupy Oakland, and (better yet) facilitate community involvement in Occupy Oakland’s decision making process and autonomous action planning.
4. Broadening the accessibility of Occupy Oakland’s information and action updates to those who do not have internet access or the ability to attend General Assembly meetings.
