On Thursday, November 12 at 7:00pm there will be a community activist networking meeting that will be open to local activist, community and student groups. The reason why this meeting was called is because there are so many organizations and individuals doing great things in the area; however, the reality is that there is a level of disjointedness, of organizations not working together as much as they should given what we’re up against. Activists from the Love and Rage Media Collective, the Mohawk Valley Freedom School and Black Rose would like to invite you to come and meet with local activists from various organizations to see what we can do to create unity and solidarity so we can build power in a real way at the grassroots. Among other things we will discuss will be the proposal to organize for a social justice conference this spring called the Utica Social Forum. Of course, we would also love to hear about your ideas.
The meeting will be held Thursday, November 12 at 7:00pm at the Mohawk Valley Freedom School at 500 Plant Street in Utica. Parking is available on the street or in the Dunkin Donuts parking lot across the street. The meeting will be held in the school building. Go upstairs as you enter the building and take a right. The meeting room will be on your right.
Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 315 240-3149 with any questions, to RSVP, or if you need transportation to the meeting.
We are looking forward to seeing you at this important meeting so we can continue in our work to build a better world.
