Come and celebrate William Stafford, Oregon's favorite poet!  Each year, in January many birthday events are held in Oregon and around the world.  This year, we thought it would be fun to have a party during a warmer party month (thus...JULY!), so we will honor our favorite peace poet on July 12th from noon to 1:30, with food, games, art, and an open mic for those who wish to read an orginal poem of peace or one of Bill's!  Kairos Milwaukie UCC is the place where the fun will happen!  The children there have already built a "poem and art wall" and want to share their work with you.  We will

Activists in the United States don't always seem to show much interest in activism except in their their special field field of activist interest: peace, environment/ecology, civil rights, etc.  But to be truly effective, the activist community needs to act together in all areas of concern for social change.  We need to be linking our interest in peace, for example, with ecology, civil rights, and economic justice, among other concerns.

The FOR Seabeck Conference keynote speakers this year will bring us perspectives on peace and nonviolence from the standpoint of activsm within the ecological and civil rights movement.
