The Republican National Convention (RNC) is coming to our backyard. Feeling angry? Want to do something? You and your organization are invited to join us for a gathering of those who have already started organizing to resist the RNC in 2008 and those looking for a place to start. This will be a space for people to come together and share ideas and energy.
The afternoon will be broken into 3 parts. We'll start with a "clearinghouse" where organizations can table and have an opportunity to chat with attendees one-on-one. This will be followed by a facilitated "open mic" discussion period. Discussion will start with explanations about what is already underway, and continue with attendees sharing their hopes, dreams, and visions with each other. The day will conclude with "break out" sessions where participants gather around specific topics of interest and decide on "next steps." Let's meet each other, get to know each other, and start to work together! Child Care and Snacks Provided. Co-hosted by: Protest RNC 2008 and the RNC "Welcoming" Committee.
To increase your participation level please contact Karen R at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Increased participation could include: having an information table, presenting your "already underway" plans, and/or volunteering to help with the event.
