Participant profile:Kelly Hayes

Kelly Hayes
is a Native American activist, Occupy organizer, street medic, and rescue scuba diver. Kelly has a background in animal and human rights, the mental health movement, and anti-deportation and home reclamation projects. She has most recently worked as an organizer with numerous Occupy groups. During the NATO summit Kelly and others succeeded in an effort to shut down Boeing. She is also involved in a memorial project to be placed in a public space, without a permit, that will honor fallen protesters abroad.
Kelly is coming to Localize This training camp because she knows that “none of us can afford to stop learning.” The powers mounted against us are too great and so is our collective potential.

“Local communities have to be inspired to organize. Otherwise, community members will remain blissfully indifferent, or simply bemoan the corrupt nature of our system. This is why projects like home reclamation are so important. Such efforts encapsulate the overall problems we face as a society, but also drive the message home, to community members, on a personal level. I also believe that fresh approaches, and increasingly creative tactics, will bolster the confidence of those I organize with, and help keep them engaged. Incorporating new ideas into campaigns will be crucial to Occupy’s survival. We all need a wider skill set to succeed.”
