Here is a statement written for presenting for and/or at tonight's fund raising / meet the BAsics Bus Tour Volunteers dinner by someone who couldn't come due to work schedule:
- If you've not taken the opportunity to participate in the Basics Bus Tour, now is the time. This bright collection of humanity has taken it upon themselves to inform the public about the injustices of our current system, and more importantly, about the alternatives. These folks are a beautiful example of people coming together using grassroots activism to better the world around them. Both behind the scenes and on the front lines, many have given what they can, asking in return only that people open their hearts and minds. - from a young person with experience coordinating food for people at Occupy Wall Street who is now a volunteer coordinating donations of food for those on the BAsics Bus Tour.
