Welcome to the Springfield, IL branch of the OCCUPY TOGETHER movement. We are a small but very vocal group here in the capital city of Illinois. We strive for three main goals through our actions, those goals are: Awareness, Education, and Empowerment to the general public and to our own members.
How can you get involved?
We hold General Assemblies as per the “people’s assembly” organizing tool used by OWS in NYC. The meetings and location are posted on the calendar on this site. We also hold many events and actions which are also posted on that calendar.
Do I have to sleep in a tent?
In short, no. The idea of the Occupy Movement is as much philosophical as it is physical. While some cities with larger groups do have active occupations we, at this time, do not. We have in the past and look forward to doing it again in the future given the right circumstances and a large enough group of people with fire in their hearts!
