"... One of those participating in Zuccotti Park that day was New York-based artist and arts activist Lopi LaRoe. Lopi, who works under the moniker 'Lmnopi,' is a former Santa Cruz resident. She has continued her work with the organization helping with disaster relief in the wake of super storm Sandy under Occupy Sandy and has been active in the fight against fracking in New York state. After spending much of the 1990s in Santa Cruz, she received a BFA in painting and printmaking from SUNY Purchase in New York."
