As we go into the Holidays, I wanted to share one great piece of news along with Team Backbone’s joyous wishes.
As you know, the Occupy movement rightly resisted making specific demands early on, but Backbone Campaign wanted to make sure that the principals associated with and the identity of the movement was truly appealing to the 99%. Backbone Campaign’s effort to HELP provide a principals-based identity to the Occupy movement proved at least partially successful. They achieved a great deal of coverage/mainstream media penetration for their support of the OccupyWashingtonDC.org occupation of Freedom Plaza. (See collage here).
And now this impressive affirmation of their work appeared in LIFE Magazine’s 2011 The Year In Pictures which includes their We the People “float” which allows any person to become a signer as part of its Occupy Wall Street section. Artist Steffon Moody collaborated with David Godsey on David’s inspiration to this project in which began back on 2007.
The Backbone Campaign thanks everyone who make their movement building efforts possible. Puffin West supported this 501(c)(3) in 2011
