Another World is Possible! Learn about the US Social Forum in Detroit this Summer!

I invite you to a panel event being organized at St. Mary's College next Thursday at 3:30pm in the Warner Conference Room. Please help us spread the word to interested students. The U.S. Social Forum is an exciting opportunity for citizens from around the country to come together to find new ways to address the social justice and ecological crises our nation and world are facing.

We're hosting a national organizer from the USSF national planning committee next week, and there are a few opportunities for informal meetings with local organizers as well. If you know anyone who want to meet with him while he's in town next Thursday, please let me know. In any case, please help inform members of your congregation about the US Social Forum. Our local Jobs with Justice chapter will be organizing group travel via Amtrak, and I can keep you posted on that, or send people to our website:


Interested in making a difference on issues like poverty, housing and jobs?

Text Box: The US Social Forum (USSF) is a convening of activists interested in creating strategies to respond to our economic and ecological crises, both at home and globally.   Held in Detroit June 22-26 2010, the USSF is a key step in the effort  to build a multi-racial, inter-generational, diverse, inclusive, and internationalist movement that transforms this country and our local communities.   The USSF provides opportunities to learn from each other’s experiences and struggles, and  share our analysis of the problems our communities face – all with the goal of aligning  with our international brothers and sisters to strategize how to reclaim our world.

Three Speakers from the US Social Forum will be at SMC to speak about why these issues are important and how YOU can get involved
