This meeting doesn’t completely fit into GVCP’s guidelines. The three campaigns aren’t ones on which GVCP usually works.
However, GVCP members are uniformly concerned about Donald Trump’s policies on war, nuclear weapons, and torture. (Just to name a few.) I’m forwarding this message from Ruth Witte so that you know about this important event, even though it’s not officially co-sponsored by GVCP.

Subject: Genesee Valley Resisting Trump
We’re excited about The Genesee Valley Resists Trump meeting tomorrow. MoveOn.org as organized 500 meetings nationwide, with 8000 signed up through this site alone! Needless to say, many of us have been in deep despair since the election and the time has come for us to take a stand and do what we can to interfere with the Trump Administration’s destructive policies!
