Not in the mood to occupy? How do you show discontent?

    Camping out in public to draw attention to corporate greed, ineffectual government and growing income inequality might not be for you. What do you do to express your discontent with the economy?

    Camping out in public to draw attention to corporate greed, ineffectual government and growing income inequality might not be for you. But that doesn’t mean you don’t care. 

    There are other ways to voice your opinions on—and better yet, do something about—the state of affairs in this city, this region, this country.

    What do you do to show your discontentwith the economy? Tell us below.

    You can act from inside the system: running for local office, working with the homeless, volunteering with neighborhood groups, raising money, working for a lobbyist, tutoring kids and adults.

    You can act out: protests, civil disobedience, graffiti. You can try to change the conversation with blogs and social media and public relations.

    You can use your talents to fight the good fight—whatever that may be—as a filmmaker, a writer, a photographer, a songwriter.

    You can even simply sit back and support the people who do all these things.

    Outside of recent and ongoing actions tied to the Occupy Wall Street movement, what do you do to express your discontent with the economy? How are you voicing or acting on those concerns?

    Tell us in the comments below. We’d like to talk to you for an upcoming story.
