Want to support something special? Oakland Local is partnering with Susie Cagle to support her Illustrated History of Occupy Oakland a terrific project that is already 75% funded-but that needs your support to get to the finish line.

From the General Assembly to the food lines to the self-policing, I will be producing a five-part series of graphic reportage to show how this movement is working for the diverse population of Oakland.
