Starts Saturday, June 27, 2020 at 12:30 PM for 90 minutes
Join World BEYOND War for a "virtual chapter open house" to meet our chapter coordinators from around the world! First,
we'll hear from World BEYOND War's Executive Director David Swanson and
Organizing Director Greta Zarro about WBW's mission and campaigns, and
how to build the peace movement within the context of the current issues
we're facing, from the coronavirus pandemic, to systemic racism, to
ongoing climate change. Then we'll divide up into breakout rooms by
region, each moderated by a World BEYOND War chapter coordinator. In our
breakouts, we'll hear what chapters are working on, discuss our
interests, and brainstorm how we can collaborate with other WBW members
in our respective regions.
Breakout Room moderators include: Liz Remmerswaal (New Zealand), John Pegg (Midwest USA), Al Mytty and Tom Miller (Florida, USA), Tim Pluta (Europe), Helen Peacock (Ontario, Canada), Furquan Gehlen (British Columbia, Canada), John Miksad (NYC Metro Region, USA), and Laurie Timmermann (Southeast USA). We'll also have a mixed region breakout room, if you aren't located in a region with a chapter coordinator!
