Author, activist and native New Yorker, Sherry Wolf will provide an eyewitness account of the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement to discuss how we are living through a period of profound social, political and economic transformation. OWS has become a touchstone for a vast array of grievances. As an active participant in the OWS movement with many years’ experience as an organized leftist, Wolf will challenge students to think through their own preconceived notions of how our society operates and can change. Wolf will explore how this movement came about and is evolving to challenge corporate power and inequality in ways not seen for 40 years.
