Alternative media/peaceworker event

From the open publishing newswire:

Spread the word!

From Northern California to Olympia the people of Southern Cascadia say NO to War! Join us for an afternoon of discussion about how alternative media and peaceworkers of the region can collaborate together to stop the war.

Come join the Alternative Media and Peaceworker Convergence.

When: Sunday, March 16th, (the day after the next big rally for Peace in Portland)
Where: Portland State University, Smith Center ballroom (room 355) 1825 SW Broadway, Portland, Oregon
Time: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
Free and open to the public

The idea behind this gathering is to bring together alternative media and Peace groups in SW Cascadia to have some face-to-face discussions about logistics and networking issues. We want people to meet each other. We want people to network. We want participants to learn to speak to each other in a non-competitive, cooperative way to allow for better flow of information. There will, I am sure, be other important discussions.

We will be inviting almost 200 peace groups from Oregon and SW Washington. We will be inviting almost 100 alternative media organizations. We will be introducing participants to each other, indentifying peaceworkers and alternative media in the region. We will be asking five questions and capturing their answers into a summary.

This is a major networking event for participants!
