Summary Box: What has Occupy achieved in 6 months?

Associated Press

SPRING REVIVIAL: Occupy Wall Street protesters are planning renewed demonstrations six months after the movement was born in lower Manhattan. Organizers have set May 1 as a global day of "economic disruption."

CHANGE OF FOCUS: The Occupy movement has influenced the national dialogue about economic equality, with the word "occupy" itself becoming part of the public lexicon.

VARIED IMPACT: The protest movement is credited with a range of more concrete accomplishments, from influencing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's about-face on a millionaire's tax to helping to save an Atlanta church and veterans' homes from foreclosure in Atlanta and Minneapolis. In Rhode Island, Occupy Providence won a temporary day center to serve the homeless during the winter.
