Peace and Justice Coalition members:
Be reminded of online Reel & Meal program this Monday, April 20- details below.
Next Sat. April 25 there’s a now all-online World Conference that covers many of our favored causes – its subtitle is “Abolish Nuclear Weapons; Resist and Reverse the Climate Crisis; For Social and Economic Justice”

Here’s a sign-up link sent by a MD Peace Action leader. If it turns out it’s too late for real-time attendance, look for livestream notice.

“This note is addressed to people who initially registered to attend the April 24-26 World Conference events at the Riverside Church and Union Square. Because of the limited capacity of our online conferencing system, we have found it necessary to ask everyone who wants to join the conference itself (it will also be live streamed) to register
Hoping you will be able to join us, Stay well and safe, Joseph Gerson”.

To order email: – please use Reel and Meal Picnic for subject. Contactless pick-up and delivery available.

At 7 pm the program will begin, and it will conclude by 9:30. The presentation and discussion will be facilitated by Lore Rosenthal with a series of short film clips; a brief discussion will follow each film.

Film clips will include: Greta Thunberg, The Sunrise Movement, Project Drawdown, and Young Voices for the Planet. Several guest speakers have been invited to join us, such as a representative from the Eleanor Roosevelt High School Sunrise Hub, McKayla Wilkes for Congress campaign, Joseph Jakuta to talk about the School Board Climate Action Plan, and Tom Dernoga to talk about our County Climate Action Plan. Audience participation is strongly encouraged.

The event will be via ZOOM. RSVPs are REQUIRED – we will send the Zoom Invite to those who RSVP. Please RSVP to: This ZOOM event is limited to 100 people.
