first week of August brings a unique opportunity for the members of
Chicago IJAN. We will be sending four of our organizers to the Twin
Cities for a national IJAN Organizing Institute. This will be an
opportunity for us to share and develop experience, strategies, theory
and practice with IJAN chapters throughout the country. At the end we
look forward to being stronger and more effective both as a local
chapter and national organization.
To make this possible we need to raise
$1000.00 to contribute towards the event. We are reaching out to those we know to attend a Sunday brunch (featuring homemade anti-Zionist bagels) and conversation
to help us reach our goal. The event will include brief articles and
facilitated discussion around pertinent issues in the region. It will
be an opportunity for us to eat and learn together. RSVP to chica...@gmail.com.
Please join us:
Sunday, July 31st at 12:00 noon
3115 W. Sunnyside Avenue #3 (3rd buzzer from the bottom)
If you are unable to attend the fundraiser, we ask that you consider making a donation all the same. Donations can be made online or Checks can be made out to IJAN with "Chicago for the OI" in the subject line and sent to:
P.O. Box 29724
Oakland, CA 94604
(either way please e-mail and let us know how much you contributed, so we can keep track of how much we've raised)
Thank you for your support and we hope to see you Sunday!
