A CALL TO ALL WORKING FOR A LIVABLE FUTURE

A One Day Conference connecting Endless War, Climate Emergency, and Social & Racial Injustice

Wherever we look these days we see wars and rumors of wars. We see the military budget rising into the stratosphere and the growing danger of war – even nuclear war -- as our country undermines arms control agreements and plans a $1.7 trillion upgrade of our nuclear weapons.

But what do war, war spending, and useable nuclear weapons have to do with the flourishing climate movement, the growing effort at the border to protect the rights of immigrants and refugees, and relentless movements for economic justice and against rasicism?

The answer is, “Everything”.

This one-day conference will build clarity of analysis and unity of perspective across progressive sectors and to energize activists for the work ahead.  We will lift up organizing projects in the Boston area, Massachusetts and New England in the context of national politics.

General admission $35 in advance, $40 at door; member of sponsoring organization $25 in advance, $30 at door; student/ low income $10 in advance/$15 at door; supporter $75, will be thanked in materials and at conference.  All registration types include lunch and morning coffee.  To register, go to rising-up.bpt.me, or mail check to Massachusetts Peace Action Education Fund, 11 Garden St., Cambridge, MA 02138 and write “Rising Up” on the memo line; or call 617-354-2169 with credit card number.
