Cheer for Chelsea!

Chelsea Manning has been in prison about 7 years for giving WikiLeaks documents/videos about US atrocities in Iraq & Afghanistan, but Obama commuted her sentence!
We'll celebrate her release at the the fountain at 47th St. & Main, from 4:30 to 5:30pm, Wednesday, May 17. Bring signs to hold to drivers passing by. Be ready with a cheer for this brave whistleblower.
For info: Call Henry Stoever, 913-375- 0045

Memorial Day Walk/Ride/Die-In, Mon. 5/29

About 130 nations are creating a document at the UN to ban nuclear weapons. In that spirit, on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29, join PeaceWorks in our annual Walk/Ride/Die-In to seek a nuke-free world. We go from Kansas City's old nuclear weapons parts plant to the new plant, and then have a die-in to recall the deaths of more than 150 persons from contaminants at the old plant (Bannister Federal Complex).

Don't want to walk the whole way? Join us along the way or at the end:

  • 8 am, start walk-- Bannister Road & Wayne (park on Lydia)
  • 11 am, last mile-- Prospect & Mo. Hwy. 150 (park on Prospect)
  • 12:15 pm, program & die-in, 14510 Botts Rd (park on Botts or Prospect)

For info: Call Henry Stoever, 913-375-0045, or see Facebook at PeaceWorksKC.

SURJ zeroes in on education issues

KC's chapter of Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) monthly meetings offer a forum for white people to develop their racial justice practice. This month, SURJ will explore KC education issues from funding formulas to charter schools to our current level of segregation (greater than in the 1960s!). Come to the SURJ meeting Mon. May 15, 7-8:30 pm, at St. Mark Hope and Peace Church, 3800 Troost, KCMO. (More info here.)
