Occupy Baltimore has working groups that organize and plan different functions. Participating in one of these groups is a great way to get involved; you're also encouraged to start your own! Working groups meet independently and report back to the general assembly.
Here are some of our currently active working groups:
Occupy Our Homes/Right to Housing Alliance is fighting back against foreclosures and eviction by standing with homeowners and tenants for the human right to housing. Please share your story, and get connected.
OOH meets on Wednesday nights at 6:30PM. To contact OOH-Baltimore directly, please email email@example.com
Schools Not Jails is targeted specifically at the school-to-prison pipeline' in Baltimore. Its January action targeted a planned youth jail, and may have been successful in halting construction. Check out their website.
Occupy 4 Jobs
Occupy 4 Jobs fights for full employment for everyone. In Baltimore, the group is partnering with Southern Christian Leadership Conference to engage in civil rights struggles. The national Occupy4Jobs network has a website and a Twitter.
Committee meetings are generally held every other Wednesday at 7PM, @ 2011 N. Charles St. Baltimore, MD 21218.

Outreach spreads the word about Occupy Baltimore through phone calls, fliers, and more. It's currently working on a presentation that can be given to community groups. The outreach group also helps other working groups to promote their actions. Send the outreach committee an email at: email@example.com.
Remember: at the end of the day, we're all on outreach!
The media group meets sporadically and sometimes in pieces, but it's a crucial element of the effort. It deals mostly with our online presence. To get in touch with Media, you can send an email, tweet, or Facebook message.
The OccupyBaltimore library has a large website that offers a wide variety of resources. We always need people to bring new articles and lists of resources to put up. We also offer a roving library where we bring books to each Occupy action. This is a way to be involved if you aren't able to get out often, or if you want to contribute online. If interested just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Peace Warriors are committed to transformation. Spreading ideas, images, information, through direct action, this group spreads the message that another world IS possible. They meet sporadically but for more information contact email@example.com
School of Occupy
The School of Occupy is a working group dedicated to finding unique solutions to issues regarding energy (investment & sustainability), employment, & education. We are currently not meeting.
