Minnesota Peace Project CD8 organizing meeting

by Minnesota Peace Project-CD8

Would you like to influence US foreign policy for the better? Are you ready to see your member of Congress listen to the anti-war majority for a change?

The Minnesota Peace Project (MPP) is a statewide network of citizen activists in every Congressional District who are trying to influence US policy through our Congressional Representatives. In its short life, the MPP has had remarkable success at building relationships with the Minnesota delegation to Congress. Among other victories, the MPP has convinced both Minnesota Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken to co-author a bill to ban cluster munitions -- a ban that is opposed by the Obama Administration.

MPP will be holding a District 8 organizing meeting in Duluth on Wednesday, April 28 from 6-8pm in the basement meeting room of the Chester Creek Cafe
. MPP co-organizer Mary Hinz will be on hand to speak about the project and its history, and then we will discuss ways to organize an MPP team here in Representative Oberstar's district. The meeting is open to anyone who wants to learn more about the MPP or is interested in volunteering with peace lobbying efforts in District 8.

Hi,
Could someone who has met with Mary Hinz about starting a MPP group in your area contact me? We are, as of tonight, looking at putting together a MPP in CD6 and have only the bare bones information about it. Any help you could share about how to get it started and advertised would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
