45. Would like to know more about the facilitator Michael S Parsons
Edited on Wed Oct-19-11 02:48 PM by chill_wind
From their about page:

"This project began as a collaboration between college students and the pro bono lawyers who went to represent the students when they got arrested in NYC during an Occupy Wall Street demonstration."

Is that likely to be a student or one of the lawyers?

Quick google scan of attorneys by that name has me curious, but not much turns up but this.
