Abstract Kimberly Kasey was born in 1970 at Walson Army Hospital in New Jersey, and moved to Utah as a child when her grandfather took an assignment as a contractor for the Air Force. Kimberly became involved with the Occupy Salt Lake movement, taking part in marches and rallies. After Pioneer Park was closed to the movement, Kimberly became a liaison between Occupy Salt Lake and Occupy Ogden. She describes the excitement involved in starting the Occupy Ogden movement from the ground-up and also speaks to the logistics of the small Ogden camp, as of the date of the interview located on the front lawn of the Universalist Unitarian Church. She summarizes her issues of concern relative to the Occupy movement, which include: corruption in the government and monopolization of economic sectors. Kimberly also traces the intersection of the homeless population, and other disenfranchised groups, and their involvement or lack of involvement with the movement. Project: Occupy Salt Lake City. Interviewer: Erin Halcomb.
