We're going to need to find people places to stay for at least a few days leading up to the event so there's time for training programs. We also need places to sleep during the event because not everyone is going to camp. We need to start getting in touch with organizations, shelters, churches, etc. that are willing to shelter people going to this event.
Also many organizers outside of New York have contacted us about staying in New York for the weeks preceding this event to help out. The problem is that no one can afford a $150/night hotel room for 6 weeks! If you have a couch or bed you can spare to this cause, please let us know in this thread so you can get in touch with others who might need it.
