In the 10 weeks since that momentous spark in mid-September, what began as an audacious protest, call to action, and singular act of civil disobedience on Wall Street, has quickly taken root worldwide. Capturing the hearts of those impacted by the current economic and political system, speaking passionately for the disenfranchised, and uniting arms in solidarity with protest movements around the world, the Occupy movement has become a lightning rod and catalyst stimulating a long needed dialogue. Economic and social justice, corporate control and profiteering, and systematic corruption are just part of that discussion.

On Thursday, December 15, 2011 please join us in San Francisco for the next Kitchen Table Talks for a thought provoking and stimulating exploration of the context, implications, actions, and promise of Occupy for the food movement.  

When: Thursday, December 15. 2011; 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Food and drink at 6:30 pm; Discussion at 7:00 pm
Where: Women's Building, 3543 18th St. (between Valencia and Guerrero Streets), San Francisco
Tickets: $10
A limited number of sliding scale tickets will be available on a first come, first serve basis at 7 pm on the night of the event.
