Military Spending vs.
Judith LeBlanc, National Organizer for Peace Action, will update us on Peace Action’s national campaign to Move the Money from the military to human needs and discuss building coalitions with human service, labor, and community groups. See her biography and read an article about the campaign.
We're stronger together! The 25% Campaign has merged with Massachusetts Peace Action. We'll discuss plans to blend the two organizations.
Workshops will address:
• bringing peace issues into 2012 election campaigns
• organizing community campaigns to move the money
• the war danger with Iran
• working with the media
We’ll elect new board members-- see the nominees and info on the process. And we'll discuss our work towards a nuclear-free world.
Join Massachusetts Peace Action as we review our progress in 2011 and chart the path for our work in 2012.
