|February 3||Caribbean House Party|
Put on Your Dancing Shoes! Caribbean House Party Dancing with Anayansi on Saturday, February 3, 2007 @ 7:30PM at Kay and Walter Tillow’s (1227 S 6th St). A $15 minimum donation is requested. To hit the dance floor, RSVP @ KY Jobs With Justice at 502.582.5454 or [email protected]. Funds will be used to help send delegates to the US Social Forum in Atlanta in June! We’ve sent delegates to the World Social Forum, now we want KY to represent in GA! The US Social Forum is more than a conference, more than a networking bonanza, more than a reaction to war and repression. The USSF will provide space to build relationships, learn from each other’s experiences, share our analysis of the problems our communities face, and bring renewed insight and inspiration. It will help develop leadership and develop consciousness, vision, and strategy needed to realize another world. Want more information on the US Social Forum? Visit www.ussf2007.org.

|Jan 30||Happy Birthday, Attica!|
On Wednesday, January 30th, Attica will turn 35! As she does every year, Attica is asking folks to show her some love by donating to her charity of choice: Kentucky Jobs With Justice. Attica is asking for a $35.00 donation to KY JWJ—her goal is to raise $350.00 to help send folks to the US Social Forum in Atlanta in June. While $35 is the request, you can give whatever you can afford. You can donate on line at www.kyjwj.org. See the icon on the bottom, left-hand side of the page that reads “Donate.” Once you click on the icon, be sure to designate a local coalition – that would be: Kentucky Jobs With Justice. We thank you in advance!
