IN SOLIDARITY WITH OUR COLLEAGUES IN COLORADO AND THE HEARTFELT FEELING OF COMMUNITY, WE HAVE DECIDED TO CONTINUE WITH OUR EVENT AS PLANNED. WE HAVE RECENTLY TRAINED OVER 100,000 PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE NATION IN NONVIOLENT DIRECT ACTION, IN THE SPIRIT OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT. MOVEON IS A NON PARTISAN, GRASSROOTS ORGANIZATION THAT WORKS IN COOPERATION WITH OTHER LIKE-MINDED GROUPS FOR PEACE AND PROGRESSIVE CHANGE WITH A STRONG COMMITMENT TO OUR COUNTRY AND ALL OF OUR PEOPLE. ALL ARE WELCOME TO JOIN US. SO, IN THAT SPIRIT, WE ARE HEARTBROKEN ABOUT WHAT HAS HAPPENED AND WILL DEDICATE OUR EVENT TO HONOR NONVIOLENCE AND THOSE WHO DIED IN COLORADO AND THEIR FAMILIES AND GO FORWARD WITH OUR GATHERING CELEBRATING COMMUNITY, SOLIDARITY, AND LOVE OF OUR COUNTRY AND ALL OF OUR PEOPLE. PLEASE COME JOIN US!
Update : As we join our nation in mourning, we will dedicate our gathering to nonviolence and to the spirit of community and solidarity of all of the people of our country. We go forward with our event feeling that to do anything less would not honor those who died in Colorado. All are welcome to join us for a great get together and to discuss our plans and strategy for the coming election season and to see where you would like to get involved.
The details! Meet us at Heritage Park, corner of Yale and Walnut in Irvine. We'll start at about 12 noon and go on--if you need to come late, that's ok too On Yale, turn left into the parking lot and park near the Community Center or in the back.
