Suits for Wall Street
The ad-hoc organization Suits for Wall Street have a fascinating goal: to improve the attire of those engaged in protest. They want to remove the “those are just dirty hippies” argument against their movement, and they’re doing it by acknowledging the significance of aesthetics and social relationships in idea-driven efforts. They’re bringing truckloads of dress clothes (and barbers and stylists) to the protestors occupying Wall Street in New York City. It’s a remarkable effort no matter how you feel about the protestor’s politics.
