Proposal to lower quorum

Occupy Oakland GA

Whereas the General Assembly of Occupy Oakland has continued to meet every week, Whereas the last resolution regarding quorum set quorum at 70 attendees, Whereas the General Assembly is generally attended by less than 20 people, Whereas the current quorum makes it impossible for Occupy Oakland to pass official resolutions endorsing new committees or actions, It is resolved to set quorum at 25 attendees until such time as typical attendance increases and this number can be re-evaluated. 53332

[#2 for 4/4/12 GA] Door to Door Outreach Proposal

This is a proposal for Occupy Oakland to systematically go door to door to meet every family in Oakland with the emphasis on organizing and recruiting women to become a part of the Occupy movement. We emphasize women because women are the masses of the people and are the most oppressed among the 99%.

Women are the first teachers of both … Continued
