This Week’s Featured Occu-Project

Doctors for the 99%

  • We are a group of physicians from the Bronx launching a national campaign to rally support for the Occupy movement among physicians. We are creating a decentralized network of activist physicians, under the banner of Doctors for the 99%, to thrust the themes of Occupy into our medical communities and to re-invigorate fundamental advocacy roots within our professional ethos. We intend to build up our base before upcoming days of Direct Action. We are promoting a button campaign and utilizing most major social media platforms in conjunction with a web platform to facilitate communication and raise awareness.
