People for Peace & Justice Sandusky County
Meeting this Wednesday, April 26
6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
First UCC, 1500 River Rd., Fremont
The meeting will begin with a potluck and open discussion of recent actions. We hope to hear from those who attended science marches this past weekend or participated in other activism/advocacy in the past month.
At 7:15 pm, we’ll begin our business/planning meeting. First on the agenda, will be Fair Booth planning for the Aug. 22 – 27 Sandusky County Fair. Fair Booth Chair Elaine Bast will lead the discussion. We will discuss the booth theme and activities, as well as materials and logistics.
Next Dave Pasch will introduce a proposal for a city council resolution from World Beyond War. The resolution would endorse moving federal budget spending from militarism into human and environmental needs. Click here to see a sample resolution.
One of our PPJ friends suggested that a sanctuary city resolution would be worth pursuing. We’ll discuss this briefly to determine whether any of our membership would be interested in working on this and bringing forward a plan at a future meeting. Here’s what Cincinnati did. And here is an ACLU Freedom City proposal.
Announcement: Area activists are hosting an Indivisible Conference- Revitalizing Democracy, May 27, 8:30 am – 2:00 pm, Maumee Indoor Theater. Click here for further info.
