Here are a few ways to support the burgeoning movement.

First and foremost, get to Liberty Plaza to join those that Occupy Wall St. if you can. This is the heart of the movement and the inspiration for what is happening across the country. Carpools coast to coast are being arranged va this Facebook group.

Get informed and let your friends and family know what is happening down on Wall Street, what the movement is about, and why you care.

Print, post and forward these fliers.
