People for Peace & Justice Sandusky County
Monthly Meeting: March 15, 6:30 – 8:30 pm
First United Church of Christ, 1500 Tiffin Rd., Fremont
All are welcome!

Our meeting begins with a potluck. Over dinner we’ll start with report backs from any of you who have attended events or taken action since our last meeting.  We’ll talk about the possibility of sponsoring a fair booth this summer.  And we’ll finish the evening with a half hour video about the Danish resistance to Hitler during World War II  from the PBS series A Force More Powerful.

By the way, our regular weekly vigils for peace and justice continue, weather permitting.  They take place 4:00 – 5:00 pm every Wednesday except the third Wednesday (when we have our monthly meeting) at the corner of Front and State in Fremont.  When Daylight Savings Time begins (March 12) we will change our schedule to 4:30 – 5:30 pm.

Upcoming event: Demonstration and meeting on healthcare at Rep. Jim Jordan’s Norwalk office, Tuesday, March 7, 11:00 am. We will be meeting with Jordan’s aide, Neil Lynch, to challenge Jordan’s statements about his healthcare plan. When Jordan took questions from a crowd at the Harding Home in Marion last week, he told us, “Health care gets better and costs less when Obamacare is gone.” We know that is patently false. He claimed that pre-existing conditions will be covered, but the truth is that in the final analysis his plan will take us back to the dark, old days before Obamacare. If you would like to give your comments or personal story at the meeting with his aide, we will make you a part of the meeting. If the room is not big enough for all who would like to speak, we will cycle people in and out. Meanwhile the rest of us will demonstrate in front of his office. Please bring signs related to healthcare. We will alert the media. Questions? Email Josie at fremontpeace@gmail.com.

We invite you to join us for one or more of our March events!
