Barber II of the renewed Poor People’s Campaign (originally initiated in 1967 by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King – yes another 50th!!) is meeting with Matthew Hoh of Veterans for Peace to combine against Militarism, Poverty, Racism, and Ecological Devastation. You can stream ONLINE at 6pm EST. Tweet using hashtags #WarEconomy #PoorPeoplesCampaign #VeteransForPeace

Riverside Salem UCC/DC will have a special program today at 4pm on Pilgrimages; and our allies at WNYMuslims are holding their wonderful Collective Banquet (see both below).

Kathy Kelly, vcnv.org, and Joe Egg, Geothermal expert, will be on our radio show on Monday.

The Dinner was wonderful – Media celebrated – and the Sacred Defended. And the Community was Beloved.

Hi, All! 716-332-3904; 716-931-3520 11/3/17

The WNY Peace Center’s 50th Annual Dinner with Amy Goodman – on double-checking etc – is SOLD OUT!! So sorry to those of you who are disappointed!! We have however gotten special dispensation from the wonderful staff at the Buffalo-Niagara Convention Center to allow people to come to hear Amy Goodman speak at this truly a historic event. So IF YOU HAVEN’T already purchased a ticket – i.e., have a reservation at the door – you can come at 7pm (or shortly before) for admittance when Amy speaks for a donation of $20.

The awards to Ken Sherman & Riverside Salem UCC/DC – and a surprise media person – will also be given after Ms Goodman’s talk, “21 Years Covering the Movements Changing America.” Ismail & Co. will also be playing for the after-celebration (right there of course with our friends at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center). There’s free parking for all at the Fernbach Ramp.

We’ll also have special DVDs of our dear Pete Seeger’s performance and sharing at our 2013 Annual Dinner at what was his last fully public performance – we’ll be giving them ***as a thank-you for memberships!!*** (sorry that phrase got left out of our last email!!)

And again, physical tickets are not being distributed.

Hi, All! 716-332-3904; 716-931-3520 11/1/17

The WNY Peace Center’s 50th Annual Dinner with Amy Goodman is coming up the day after tomorrow!! On-line ticket (actually reservation) sales are over, but you can come ahead at 5pm when doors open to buy – limited – tickets then.

The Dinner, Nov 3 (5-9:30pm; Buffalo-Niagara Convention Center), will be memorable – truly a historic event. And we need to gather, connect, and build a movement now more than ever – with increasing violence and militarism, our friends and neighbors under attack, and a swampier swamp than ever – so don’t miss it!

Ms. Goodman will be signing copies of her new best-seller Democracy Now! Twenty Years of Covering the Movements Changing America. (See The Public/Geoff Kelly’s Amy Goodman interview! in the Oct 25 edition of the paper.)

Awards to Ken Sherman & Riverside Salem UCC/DC – and a surprise media person – will be given. And more…. Music with Saxman Slim to start and Ismail & Co. for after-celebration (right there of course with our friends at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center). There’s free parking for all at the Fernbach Ramp.

Don’t forget the Basket Raffle and Silent Auction! We’ll also have special DVDs of our dear Pete Seeger’s performance and sharing at our 2013 Annual Dinner at what was his last fully public performance – we’ll be giving them as a thank-you

And again, physical tickets are not being distributed.
