Hurricane Sandy Relief

MoRUS – the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space in New York – is exhibiting works of art from the Occupy Wall Street movement (OWS) for community service.  It is intended that monies raised from this exhibition will be put toward Hurricane Sandy Relief. MoRus is also working with squat residents to rescue items that have been flooded, such as a bike generator that OWS members use during their sit-ins.  Currently, the bike is being used to enable the community to access free mobile phone charging.  The museum said: “MoRUS has set up Occupy Wall Street bike generators on Avenue C between 9th and 10th Streets. For the past two days, volunteer riders have been pedaling as crowds of people gather to charge up their cell phones. For many people, this has been the first time they’ve been able to contact loved ones after Hurricane Sandy hit.”  Clearly organizations and individuals in the Big Apple are banding together to help post-Hurricane Sandy.
