Abstract Heather Suker (b. 1987) has been involved in political activism for about three years, beginning with her participation with Peaceful Uprising and its support of Tim DeChristopher's civil disobedience. She served on the Board of Directors of Peaceful Uprising and learned about Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Salt Lake City through her involvement with this group. After learning about Occupy Wall Street, Heather traveled across the country and spent about a week at Occupy Wall Street. She describes how her experience in New York City inspired her to play a significant role in the unfolding Occupy Salt Lake City movement. Heather spent several days camping on the sidewalks outside of Salt Lake City's Federal Reserve building, and she outlines the struggle of Occupy Salt Lake City to claim a permanent space from which to protest. She details the cooperation between protesters and the Salt Lake police force, highlighting Police Commissioner Burbank's willingness to negotiate with protesters. Heather expresses her optimism for the movement's future and the changes it might lead to.Occupy SLC Oral History Project. Interviewer: Erin Halcomb
