Dear Friends! 716-332-3904; 716-931-3520 12/21/17

All the holidays (Hanukkah; Christmas; Kwanza; New Years, +) serve to remind us of what’s truly important – People and the Planet, the Spirit(s) and the Principles. May we find more strength and courage in the new year, more compassion and commitment, so that together, we can unite and Justice and Peace prevail…. Si, se puede! …. with Truth and Love.

Worried people have speculated that it’d be just like he-who-shall-not-be-named to fire Mueller on Friday to get a little attention on it as possible. So **IF** – and only if – that happens, Buffalo Stands with Mueller (including Move-On, Sister District, StandUpWNY, the WNY Peace Center, and more) will gather at Noon to 1pm, Sat 12/23, at Lafayette Presbyterian Church, for a short march. To receive event updates, and for related events (call tonight; sign-making tomorrow), RSVP at https://www.trumpisnotabovethelaw.org/event/mueller-firing-rapid-response/18063/signup/?akid=&zip=&source=

We shall overcome!!
