Central Ohioans for Peace -- August Agenda

Central Ohioans for Peace -- online at centralohioansforpeace.org -- is an organization with a long history of opposing the all-too-frequent policy of American warmaking. The organization meets every Monday at 7pm in the Columbus Mennonite Church, 35 Oakland Park Avenue (one block east of High Street in Clintonville). Central Ohioans for Peace is an activist organization, and so its meetings are working meetings dedicated to the planning of actions as well as the spreading of information. Here are a few items from C.O.P.'s meeting agenda for August:

Monday, August 14, 7 pm: Janet McLaughlin: Pax Christi & the U.S. Department of Peace; Walk for Peace

Monday, August 21, 7 pm: David Stutzman: Military Counseling Network, Germany.

Monday, August 28, 7 pm: Activism Planning: Walk for Peace, International Day of Peace

The Walk for Peace that you see as an agenda item is planned for September 11, and will commemorate the 100th anniversary of Mohandas K. Gandhi's first non-violent action, held way back in 1906. As the event comes closer and details emerge, I'll let you know more about it.
