GVCP Newsletter Zoom Meeting—Colombia—Sunday, May 24th, 1:30 PM

May 19, 2020

The regular meeting of Genesee Valley Citizens for Peace will be on Sunday, May 24th, at 1:30 PM.  See Zoom information below.

This month we have a guest speaker, who will talk to us about the situation in Colombia.

Guest Speaker

James Jordan is National Co-Coordinator of the Alliance for Global Justice, based in Tucson.  James directs AFGJ’s Labor and Colombia solidarity projects.

James has traveled to Colombia many times.  Given the situation in that country, his travels put him at great personal risk, but he goes there just the same.  James is the winner of the prestigious International White Dove Award, given to him by the Rochester Committee on Latin America in 2019.  He’s also a musician and playwright.

James will give us his presentation and then we’ll open up the Zoom meeting for Q&A.

Following the presentation, GVCP will hold its regular monthly meeting.  We hope that GVCP members—and anyone else interested in GVCP—will stay for the meeting.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn about solidarity struggles in Colombia.  Colombia hasn’t been in the news lately, but it should be.  James will tell us why this is true.
