The Occupy Movement, Nonprofits and the “Solution”
|November 28, 2011||Posted by M. P. under News||
The video below is a collection of responses from Occupy New York attendees to the question: Are nonprofits part of the solution? Now, I am not exactly sure what solution is being referred to, but I’d hanker a guess that the concept is as varied among the interviewees as their comments.
I have been pondering the similarities and distinctions between nonprofits and the Occupy movement for a few weeks. I hope to write more about it (specific to Pittsburgh) in the future, but for now, what do you think? Are nonprofit organizations part of “the solution?”
How much do service and advocacy nonprofits and the Occupy movement have in common?
What can one learn from the other?
