TEDxSomerville: Monica Poole - Occupy the Common Wealth

Boston's Occupation at Dewey Square was not just a protest tactic: the Occupation attempted to create a convergence space for people to come together, empower themselves, and build an engaged community. The victory of the Occupation was not simply the transient literal occupation; the victory was a shift in thinking: not occupation but preoccupation. We inserted economic and social injustice and the reawakening of democracy into the public discourse; in ourselves, we nurtured collaboration, community-building, agency, and experimentation.Somerville resident Monica Poole brings her Harvard education to Bunker Hill Community College students in order to train a new generation of change agents. Her courses engage the Boston community through experiential learning in subjects such as: ethical hacking, global history, philosophy, and political activism.
