Had an awesome conversation with Tim Anderson about what is going on in the field at Occupy Seattle. According to Tim, he is seeing the group naturally split between violent and non-violent factions within the occupy movement. As a student of organizational systems, I was facinated with Tim’s account of how this started for him and the next steps. This is an incredible opportunity for people to get engaged in the conversation and call to action. I will be having Tim on again as well as more folks from the ground and the movement to talk about how this change is playing out. Go to: www.occupyseattle.org for more information and on Facebook at Let’s Make it a Love Revolution, Seattle!

This video does an excellent job of understanding the income gap.

The NEW LIVELIHOODS JOB FAIR (NLJF) is a FREE, first of its kind, public event aimed at bringing Snoqualmie Valley community residents together to help develop our local economy.
The NLJF is envisioned to be a platform to link those in immediate need of finding a job with local employers. Job finding helper services (i.e. resume and interview coaching) as well as social services for the financially struggling will be on site. Free workshops and exhibitor booths designed to help foster new, self-starter income earning possibilities will be offered across the day. In efforts to tap the wisdom of enrolled groups, an innovative workshop facilitation method known as “Open Space” will be hosted to identify and prepare potential next steps about creating new forms of work, new businesses — new livelihoods in our valley!
Who Should Attend
Valley residents of all ages who are unemployed, underemployed and/or unhappily employed and looking for meaningful work.
Businesses wanting to promote their products and services, network and collaborate with others, find employees or interns, or share their skills.
Entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and idea people looking to develop or promote local co-operatives, partnerships or business ventures.
Keynote Speaker – David Korten David Korten (author of Agenda for a New Economy and cofounder, board chair of YES! Magazine) was asked to speak at this event because his vision for a new economy is the kind of thinking that considers how to respond to the economic challenges we face and how to create a tomorrow where our grandchildren and their grandchildren will thrive. His message is timely and important. (Visit www.livingeconomiesforum.org to learn more about David’s work.) Food Free continental breakfast. Lunch under $10 (cash only) available for purchase from local businesses: Black Dog Cafe and EJ’s Catering. Prize Drawing FREE Mac IPAD will be raffled to registrants.
