Organizing Agenda

The ever expanding burdens thrown onto the backs of working people are not only unreasonable, oppressive and unfair, these burdens have grown too big for working people to shoulder. In response, Occupy Portland's Labor Outreach Committee has launched a Peoples’ Assembly Organizing Committee tasked with organizing, planning and facilitating the democratic development of a peoples’ budget centered on democratically addressing the primary economic interests of ordinary working people.

Initial Questions

  1. Why do we need a Peoples’ Assembly?
  2. What would a Peoples’ Assembly look like and do?
  3. Who are we going to approach as partners in building this?
  4. What are our next steps towards putting this proposal together?

Grammatical Confusion?

“Peoples’” or “People’s”?

Either way works for this group!

In addition to our group discussion list, a number of our wiki pages use the possessive of peoples, as in indigenous peoples. It's likely, however, that the possessive of people, as in We the People, will appear more often in the discussions we have and in the documents we craft.
