On Sunday, November 20th, the newly formed "Council of Elders," veterans of America's 20th Century civil rights movement entered the 21st Century Occupy Wall Street movement in New York and other "Occupy" cities nationwide. Known as the "Council of Elders," they stepped inside the encampments to symbolically share the torch of hope and justice and engage the Occupiers in dialogue about defining movements of the past.
The Council of Elders is an independent group of leaders from the farm workers, sanctuary and human rights movements that promote compassion and non-violent action as the highest values to reverse trends that put profits ahead of people in its quest to contribute to the much-needed movement for a more just society and a more peaceful world.

The "Elders" were represented in New York by Dr. Paul Bermanzohn, Rev. Nelson Johnson, Joyce Hobson Johnson, Rev. Mel White, Rev. Phillip Lawson, Rabbi Arthur Waskow.
