You're invited to attend and participate in this community forum on how the ongoing war in Iraq is affecting communities of color across America, including in our own community. A panel of local Native and African American community leaders will be sharing their views on the subject. After the panel gives their presentations, there will be an open, moderated discussion in which the public is invited to share their views on the war. All viewpoints are welcome. This event is free and open to everyone.

Join us in holding signs and handing out leaflets against the war!
