The first issue of the Occupied Providence Journal was a success! OP members and contributors raised funds to cover printing costs for issue #1, and 3,000 copies were distributed throughout Providence and Rhode Island! The journal is also available online here. Our 2nd issue is currently in the works, and we hope to raise enough funds through public support to cover printing costs. Please consider donating whatever you can to help support our free publication. Click here to visit our WePay site, which works very similarly to PayPal– you can donate there using a credit card or debit card.

SAVE THE HOUSE OF COMPASSION
OP members are still working to save the House of Compassion, a community residence in Cumberland RI for those living with HIV/AIDS and other disabilities, that is facing foreclosure. In addition to donations, which can be given here, volunteers are needed to help clean and prepare for upcoming inspections. Please visit the Save the House of Compassion facebook page to contact Artemis, the main organizer of this important initiative.
Thanks for your support on these exciting projects! Look out for updates soon, and as always please be sure to check the Occupy Providence calendar regularly for upcoming events, workshops, meetings and actions.
