EVENT – Potluck for Progressives
Tuesday, January 27th @ 5:30pm
AfD-R Program: Potluck for Progressives
Where: Downtown United Presbyterian Church @ 121 North Fitzhugh Street (across from Rochester City Hall). This event will be held in the second floor dining room.
What: A potluck Dinner! Please bring a dish to pass and your own place setting.
I) Potluck meal & introductions (promptly at 5:30pm.)
II) Organization Spotlight: John Rhoades from PeaceWorks—a group of area Peace organizations.
III) Presentation & discussion: Advocating for peace means many different things. Depending on your area of concern, being a peace advocate can mean working against a war or it could mean creating systems for non-violent conflict resolution. Your tactics might include poetry, music & dance or they might include aggressively taking the streets in a public protest to command media attention. You might even withhold that portion of your federal income taxes you believe would otherwise be allocated to military spending. Perhaps you seek to protect nature from the violence of development. You might be a strict vegan to prevent violence against animals. Peace underlies much of the work progressive activists do. Join us for a lively discussion about the future of the peace-movement here in our region!
The Potluck for Progressives, founded by the Rochester chapter of the Alliance for Democracy, has been bringing committed activists together to share a meal & coordinate action on a regular basis for the past several years with the goal of building a large progressive coalition in Rochester.
This event is free & open to the public. The Church is handicapped accessible and the room is looped for the hearing impaired.
You may park for free in the City Hall parking lot.
Who: Open to the public.
