Occupy National Gathering 2014 – NatGat 2014
It’s Time to Gather and Make Our Voices Heard!
Occupy National Gathering is a yearly gathering of Occupiers, supporters and coalition groups. Occupy’s third national gathering, NatGat2014 or NatGat3, will take place July 31 – August 3 in Sacramento, CA — for 4 days of teach-ins, skillshares, workshops, open spaces and actions.
Each year a collective of occupiers forms to support the host city and participate in planning and organizing the gathering, working in autonomous subgroups and projects and coming together for reportbacks and planning as the national gathering working group, or NGWG. The NGWG2014 comprises Occupy Sacramento on the ground, and Occupiers and allies from far and wide online, hopefully soon to include you!
The working groups (about 100 occupiers so far) are busy laying the tracks, and need Occupy to drive the train and bring it home. Let us know what Occupy would like to see and bring to the Occupy National Gathering!
In addition to planning the event on the ground, a few special projects are underway that can use your energy and participation:

Caravans are self-organized groups travelling to natgat and coordinating to meet up with other Occupiers along the way.
