Come to the Eastern Regional Conference!
It’s a place to share your own experiences over the year in SftP, and to explore new ways of working in progressive struggles. It’s a time to meet other people involved in common work all over the region, in genetic engineering issues, nuclear power resistance, alternative energy, anti-racism, China work, national organizing, etc.
In the past the conference provided useful resources and practical contacts. This time, its aim is to sum up our collective work in an effort to develop into a national organization which would try to reach more people consistently and be a noted force in the struggle for change. Try to talk to people about future directions for SftP in your chapter or area, and come with ideas you think are important. Your contribution will be heard. A full agenda is in the last magazine, and you can register below or on a facsimile.
