There’s been plenty of criticism about Occupy. I reported on it for almost a year and I totally get it. There were plenty of shortcomings. Occupy’s outreach for Hurricane Sandy victims, however, is not one of those shortcomings. As the video shows, they have set up a commander center to organize and get out goods. OccupySMS was created so those without power or internet but with a cell phone could reach out for help.
Occupy has two outposts good for new volunteers in Clinton Hill and Sunset Park.
