What's the relationship between Occupy Des Moines and AFSC? How are nonviolence trainings, co-led by AFSC, affecting this new movement, and how might people of faith play a role in lifting up shared concerns about the vast disparity in wealth and political power in the U.S.? Are we witnessing the birth of a new form of participatory democracy?

In this December 20, 2011 interview with co-worker Jon Krieg, AFSC Iowa Program Coordinator Kathleen McQuillen shares her thoughts about the Occupy movement. She invites yours at KMcquillen@afsc.org.
