GPL Convention Update: NEW Location & Agenda
- Due to unforeseen circumstances at St. Mary's, we have had to find new venue for the convention. We will be meeting at the same time, 12 noon, September 8th 2007, at the art gallery, L' Art Noir. The new location is just a short distance from the former location.
PLEASE MAKE NOTE OF THE NEW LOCATION:
4108 St Claude Ave
New Orleans, LA 70117
In addition to voting on Coordinating Committee members and party bylaws, we will have panels on "The Fight for Public Services" and "Building Alternative Institutions." We hope to touch on ongoing fights for health care, schooling, and public housing–not only public services that need revamping, but also alternatives that have sprouted out of necessity and ingenuity.
Also, we would like to welcome out-of-towners Alfred Molison (votealfred.com) and Austin King. Alfred Molison, a Houstonian, is Co-Chair of the Green Party Black Caucus of the U.S ., among other distinctions. Austin King is a Green who held office in Wisconsin as President of the Madison, WI Common Council.
MAKE THIS CONVENTION A SUCCESS!
