Fairbanks Advocacy Team Workshop Th. 9-26-19

Fairbanks Advocacy Workshop (free)

Join us for a Friends Committee on National Legislation Introduction to Advocacy Workshop (FCNL). Come and learn strategic and effective advocacy tools to promote peace and justice, and be part of creating a local grassroots advocacy team in Fairbanks. At the workshop, you will also learn about the 2019 FCNL Advocacy Team campaign to repeal the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) that have been used by three presidents to justify endless wars. This Introduction to Advocacy Workshop features FCNL Advocacy Teams Trainer Sarah Freeman-Woolpert. The workshop will run from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM with a potluck at 5:30. For more information, view or download the flyer, or contact sarahfw@fcnl.org.

Peace Center Message on Borough Bus System

Since early March Bus #75 has been moving around the Fairbanks area with a message from the World Beyond War Billboard Project prominently displayed. It’s been seen by several people so we know it’s out there. Feel free to leave comments on this post to share your feedback, any thoughts you have about the message and any conversations that arise.

We’re so grateful to have the use of this bus and to have community participation. And there is still opportunity to sponsor additional months. The cost to APC per month is $120. Donations can be made via PayPal on the right-hand panel of this website, or via check to:

If this is a medium that APC supporters feel good about, there is also the opportunity to eventually run other messages on Borough buses. See https://worldbeyondwar.org/billboardsproject/ to see other message designs available.
