I know you’ve seen the emails and heard the announcements at the Rally last week…but in case you need a little push, there are only a few seats still empty for the October 2nd One Nation Working Together rally/march. Please call or email us to reserve your seat.
Thanks to the beneficence of the UAW local 2300, the two buses will be FREE and a BOX LUNCH will be thrown in as well! It will be a grueling day, starting at 2 am on Saturday morning when we board the bus, and ending around midnight when we return to Ithaca, but I’m sure the energy, enthusiasm and inspiration we will receive from being in DC with thousands of like-minded activists and organizers will be well worth it.
Read about our September 15 rally, sponsored by the Unemployed and Underemployed Support Group, in The Ithacan. The photo of long-time labor activist Kathy Valentino is by Matthew Biddle of The Ithacan.
Officemate Jim Murphy of Ithaca Veterans for Peace has asked that we announce a very special visitor to Ithaca, Army Colonel (Ret.) and Diplomat Ann Wright, author of Voices of Conscience. She will be telling the story of her transition from US Army Officer to a member of the Gaza Flotilla.
The talk is Wednesday, September 22nd, at 7 pm at the First Unitarian Church of Ithaca. She will be introduced by Nate Lewis, an Iraq War Veteran, from the Veterans’ Sanctuary.
Cosponsors include Military Families Speak Out, Veterans’ Fellowship of Reconciliation, the Social Justice Council of the First Unitarian Church, Ithaca Veterans’ Peace Council and the Social Action Committee of Congregation Tikkun v’Or/Ithaca Reform Temple.
A $10 donation is suggested. For more information, contact Jim at 319-0980 or firstname.lastname@example.org
