This announcement is two invitations-in-one:
First, if your organization recognizes tax redirection as one form of nonviolent direct action against war, we would like to acknowledge you in our printed program. Please reply to this e-mail or call me (503-285-6371).
Second, and more importantly, we hope to greet you on this Tax Day at this annual event. We promise that you will enjoy the fellowship, and that you will have something good to remember – and perhaps receive inspiration from.
This year’s public redirection has been generously sponsored by First Unitarian’s Economic Justice Action Group and Real Wealth Portland. We have been given the use of First Unitarian’s Buchan Room, which is at ground level and wheelchair accessible from Salmon Street. Please join us on Friday, April 15th, at 5:30PM. We will provide a light meal and begin our program at 6:00.
