Chapmantown / Farmers Market Event 2013

This was our third Chapmantown event.  It's a fun neighborhood gathering and the Peace Panel Project was there pitching Better World Shopping, Nonviolent Communication, and Project Censored.  Sold some books, gave away some books and a plate full of cookies, provided by Midnight Munchies.

Remember 9/11

We couldn't let 9/11 go by without a little demonstration on the street.  Peter, Chuck and I set up six easels and Peace Panels.  We caught the rush hour traffic and the attention of a few passers-by.  One remarkable young man came up and asked, "This 9/11 event has me very concerned.  What can I do? Is there a group in town I can help?"  I said, "Yes, the Chico Peace & Justice Center, 526 Broadway.  Stop by between 12 and 2."  He took a brochure and thanked me. 
It was a good day.

Realize The Dream

We had a good turn out at our local 50th anniversary of the March on Washington where Martin Luther King inspired the crowd with his "I have a Dream" speech.
