Colonel Ann Wright, outspoken activist against war, will be here in
Gainesville April 9 from 6-9 PM at the Matheson Museum, 513 E.
University Av. Gainesville, FL.
She is the keynote speaker for the Civic Media Center's annual
SpringBoard fundraiser. The evening will include delicious food, a
silent art auction, raffles, drinks and mingling. It costs $15 in
advance and $20 at the door.
CodePINK and Ann Wright have been working together on peace issues for
many years. I first met and worked with Ann at Camp Casey back in 2005.
She is a tireless advocate for peace and speaks with the knowledge of a
military insider--she resigned her post at a Colonel in protest of the
invasion of Iraq. Ck out her book: Dissent, Voices of Conscience.
If you would like to volunteer to help set up, serve and clean up at
this event, please let me know. I am volunteering for the entire day to
pkp food, set up, serve, and clean up. I spoke to Jimmy last night and
I promised Jimmy I'd let him know if there are 3 or 4 women from
CodePINK who will can confirm to help at the Matheson that evening with
setup, serving and cleanup.
Ck your calendar for April 9, and if you can volunteer, please let me
know....and hope to see you there!!
