The deadline to register for the Appalachian Group Working Group Community Organizing Summit is 4 p.m. tomorrow, Friday, March 30.
Find the weekend’s schedule, training session descriptions and a list of speakers and trainers here. We’ve also added a Sunday morning tour of nearby fracking-related sites; details will be posted on the schedule page. Also check for updates on Facebook, here.
We wanted to alert folks living in and near the Charleston to two upcoming events:
The featured speaker for this event is the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, co-chair of the U.S. Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival.” An author, preacher and professor, Barber is president and senior lecturer of Repairers of the Breach and a member of the national board of the NAACP, chairing its Legislative Political Action Committee.
Tuesday, April 3 at 7 p.m.: Free Screening of In the Hills and Hollows
A panel Q&A will follow the film with Keely Kernan (over Skype), OVEC’s executive director Natalie Thompson, and Karan Ireland, West Virginia Environmental Council.
This event is free, but tickets are required.
