talented volunteer graphic designers have provided for each event.

Just cut and paste the events listed above into an email and
circulate it to people you know, local groups and any appropriate
listserves. You can also go to
choose an event, then click on email to a friend and add as many
addresses as you wish.

Download a flyer for your area from
and hand it out or post it around town.

Ask community groups you know to put these calendar listings in
their print or email newsletters or post them on their websites.
(Please email us at community [at] and tell us if any
groups you have contacted are doing so.)

Send us ideas (pressideas [at] of any local press,
broadcast or print, who we should contact to help publicize these
events. Tell us if they have a listings column or you think they
might want to do a feature article/segment on independent media and
Amy Goodman.

Help at the event - At the events, we need volunteers to help with
sign-up sheets and flyers. If you can help, please email us at
