Career Builders gets some press

Check out the latest CN&R. The next Career Builders meeting is on a special day in Feb., Wednesday, Feb., 11, 3:30 pm at CPJC. We could use a couple of more volunteers. If you like the idea of talking to high school seniors about alternatives to the military. Join in the fun.

The Latest Peace Panel

Why is this a Peace Panel?  If more people understood that our county is committing war crimes maybe fewer young people would join the military.  Then maybe one day no one would join the military and then maybe war would stop, and we would have peace.

November 15 at the Farmer's Market

We had a fun exhibit at the Farmer's Market last Saturday.  We delivered 10 Better World Shopping Guides to a grateful customer who suggested that he intended to give them all away!  That is so great!  It's funny how many customers buy Better World Shopping Guides a handful at a time.  The weather was great; we got to hand out some brochures; met some neat people.  I got some great help from Justin, a veteran,


and the Peace Panel Project's newest volunteer.  He took the photos and helped set up and fold up.  Thank you Justin!

Peace Panel Project's 2014 Nevada Tour

Great weather greeted me as I set up the Peace Panel Project exhibit, for the fourth year, out in front of Joe Crowley Student Union of the University of Nevada Reno.  In response to the feed-back last year from the student newspaper reporter I only set up five easels, instead of all twelve.  Students get overwhelmed with too much to look at.  Everybody is exposed to so much information these days, less is better.  I got some good feed-back.  One viewer bought me lunch!

Later I got to meet with Pat Coia of the Sierra Interfaith Action for Peace.  We talked about coordinating an event next year.

I met with Katie and Kyle of "Be the Change".  They are an inspiration, living without gas, electricity or a car. Way to go!  I got some great ideas to refine the exhibit.

Met with the Program Officer of Truckee Meadows Community College and started the ball



rolling to exhibit there next year.  It was a good trip.

Farmer's Market 10/11/14

I pedaled up to the Saturday Farmer's Market at a leisurely 9:44 am and set up under the old magnolia tree.  Perfect weather, good traffic and an anti fracking parade!  What a kick!  Sold a few books; got



some great encouragement and conversations that had me feeling like the movement to more peace and justice is building.  It was a good day!

Chico Peace & Justice Annual Dinner 2014

The Peace Movement was alive and well last night at the Chico Peace & Justice Annual Dinner!  We packed the place!  Thanks to many volunteers a good meal and a great time was had by all.  We honored Michael Pike and Steven and Susan Tchudi.  Sue Hildebrand was an inspiring "mistress" of ceremonies.  We got inspired by Kristian Davis Bailey, a recent Stanford grad who connected the dots between Gaza and Ferguson.  Mini Peace Panels were on display and new large Peace Panels were unveiled.  The new Censored 2015 sold out!  It was a good showing for peace, justice and environmental stewardship.
