Announcement :: Human Rights : International : Organizing : Politics : Race : Social Welfare
First session w Councillor Turner
21 Apr 2005
Modified: 04:36:59 PM
Last nights session went well, more are planned
THANK YOU to those who attended & represented for your community - the diversity is refreshing to see, and as always, more is needed. This initial session went well, and much discussion occured on a balmy, then rainy spring evening.

Some of the topics discussed included:
Recent history, Boston's current economic situation, relating to past tactics with a focus on unity and what works... Chuck discussed the status of growing unemployment in this country, the War economy, Funding the Dream, etc. Others shared their thoughts on Human Rights issues as a global concern, school outreach, street theater & marches/rallys, organizing in respectful collaboration with youth organizers & existing groups, messages and mediums, direct action, etc.


For activists interested in entering dialogue, building Unity, networking & planning for summer & beyond, we'll hold another session soon (two weeks, time and location TBA)
Be in touch.
Peace
