I had problems with getting this out to people. For
some reason, even it I use a rtf format people can't
read this attachment. So I am putting it in an email
form. If you are on NWSA organizing committee and you
know someone who has not signed up or has not recieved
a letter please forward this to them with my
apologies. Like or Jes, Kate! Thanks!
People interested in attending the NWSA conference on
June 21st, 2003 at the Radisson Hotel on Canal, for
the first ever Activist Day need to fill out this form
and return it to me no later than June 6th. There are
spaces still available and I really need to fill them
up! What you can do is read this letter, check your
calendar to see if you are free for the 21st and then
send it back to me. Just hit reply and fill in the
blanks located at the end of the letter.
On the big day you will have a name tag available for
you and with it you can attend many great sessions on
activism, local and national, the film and writers
series and be able to meet up with many people, it is
a great way to network!
I really hope to hear back from everyone with an
overwhelming response, you should all be very proud of
your accomplishments as activist and we would like to
And one more thing if you are interested in looking at
the panels and speakers that will be presenting on

finalized but it is close!
