The Chico Chapter of Campaign Nonviolence had our first action at the "Hands" today. It was a brainstorming session about issues important to us like homelessness, the environment, police, government and others. We were well received. Many people took the time to fill our panels with their ideas. We gave out free watermelon and flyers about free trees; made many good connections. We had a "penny poll". It was an easy way for people to engage with others and share ideas. Time well spent.
