When I first started photographing Portland's Occupy encampment in the fall of 2011, I was surprised at the diversity within the movement. It reflects the 99% in America who are in dire need of serious change.
I met a lot of great people who really care about our world and are willing to put themselves on the line to affect changes.
After attending several marches and actions, I saw how the media misrepresented or under-reported what actually happened and how the truth was not being told. This humble site is my way of helping spread the voices of the 99%. They are all ages, of many ethnicities and are dedicated to making our world a humane place to live. You may be surprised at who they are and what they have to say.
