This is gonna be big!
A big Thank You to the over 1,500 backers for the Occupy Wall Street Media Kickstarter campaign! Since we launched it 2 weeks ago, the support has been overwhelming and has inspired a massive print campaign to share the voice of the movement with the world. Our first issue presented the movement rising up from Zuccotti Liberty Park as it is: diverse, articulate, principled, committed...and let's face it, fucking beautiful!
We've just put the Spanish edition of that issue to bed and our second edition is fresh off the presses. Our website will be up this weekend. Next week, we will be planning out a poster folio edition to share ideas that can only be captured with art. Finally, since our Kickstarter has been so successful, we will be producing a National Edition to be distributed throughout the country. Just how big this edition gets to be is up to you. We're shooting for $75,000 so that we can print and distribute 250,000 copies.
And that's just the beginning. We are negotiating a fiscal sponsorship with indie media stalwart, Arts Engine, and are building our organization so that we can scale with the movement. Help us make this happen and give what you can! Thanks for all the support. We love each of you, we really do, that is why we are here. Help us envision a new world.
