Visioning July 9, 2012 – Midtown Scholar – The Path Forward for Occupy Harrisburg
Task: each person was requested to compose a list of interests/concerns that they felt should be the focus attention and actions of Occupy Harrisburg. Each person’s list was given consideration. Areas of interest or concern that appeared on multiple lists were scored accordingly for future action.
