      Some important updates on the May 2nd Walk for a Just Peace in Israel and
      Palestine, See you at noon on Sunday!

      (1) Folksinger Pat Humphries will help us kick off the Walk! She'll sing
      right before the step-off from Scoville Park. (See below for more
      information about Pat.)

      (2) The National Weather Service is NOT predicting rain for Sunday in its
      latest forecast. (The high temp is predicted to be 54
      degrees--jacket!) But, IF there is rain at the time of the Walk, we will
      flip our schedule and do the buffet at the church FIRST and walk
      LATER. The show goes on in any case! Come to Scoville Park at noon and
      you'll be directed to the church if it happens to be raining.

      Acclaimed songwriter and performer Pat Humphries is in the Chicago-area to
      do several shows and has graciously agreed to help us kick-off the Walk for
      a Just Peace. Pat and her partner Sandy O are award-winning, activist
      songwriters whose songs "Keep on Moving Forward" and "Peace, Salaam,
      Shalom" have defined peace and justice events worldwide. "If I Give Your
      Name," their song about undocumented workers killed on 9/11 in the WTC won
      Grand Prize/Folk in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition. Pete Seeger
      said on NPR’s All Things Considered: “The powers that be can control the
      media (but) it's hard to stop a good song… Pat's songs will be sung well
      into the 22nd century.”

      Pat Humphries & Sandy O will be heard on Folkstage, WMFT's live in-studio
      concert at 7:00 pm on Saturday, May 1st. They will also be appearing at
      7:30 pm on Friday, May 7th at the Unitarian Church of Evanston, Ridge at
      Greenwood, Evanston, IL. Tickets: $12 in advance/$15 at the door.
      Tickets available at the Unitarian Church of Evanston and at Women &
