On the welcome table is a stack of name tag stickers, the kind that usually read “Hello, My Name Is…” But these stickers read: “Hello, My DEBT Is…” These badges are stuck onto the shirts of many of the 70-some people here, filled in with dollar amounts or words like “terrifying.”
They’re participating in something called a Debtors’ Assembly. It’s organized by Strike Debt Bay Area, the local chapter of a larger movement that came out of Occupy Wall Street. – Source
