Exhibits and Presentations in Reno 2012
The next evening I gave a presentation to a group of the Reno Quakers at their meeting house. One of the women we met with was involved in "Be the Change". She had two kids and talked about living successfully and voluntarily without electricity, for years!
Leaving town, I happened to see the current Reno News & Review with an interesting cover, "America: What Went Wrong & How Do We Fix It?" Right down my alley! After reading the article, I sent in a letter to the Editor, suggesting we include, Reinstate the "Fairness Doctrine", reduction of military spending, NVC, Ruses for War, and Better World Shopping in the conversation, (the five main themes of the Peace Panel Project. Click on "Older Posts" at the bottom for more info). You can read the essay, "Peace Profit", in their on line letters to the Editor 11/8/12.
That was three successful presentations in two days encouraging local activists, spreading ideas of peace and justice. What a good feeling.
