Occupy Congress Collected Donations

Occupy Congress collected donations that we used to fund our January 17th protest at the U.S. Capitol, and we plan to continue to collect donations to be used in mobilizing people to New York and Chicago for two big upcoming protests this Spring. On this page you will find detailed information on how much we’ve collected, what we’ve spent it on, and who donated to us. We hope that this transparency of funding can set an example for Congress.
