At 40th Street, near Broadway - a short walk towards the hills from MacArthur BART.
This is a huge project. Thousands of envelopes to stuff, seal and stamp! There is absolutely no licking involved. This is a great way for anybody (yes, you!) to step right up and make a contribution to the anti-war movement.
In the last two weeks alone, Not in Our Name Bay Area has co-hosted a fun-filled evening of anti-war square dancing, co-sponsored regional tours by military war resisters Kevin Benderman and Camilo Mejia, and contributed significant resources to the May 10 National Day of Action to Support GI Resisters.
We are very proud that these efforts raised thousands of dollars, and invaluable public attention, for those that have demonstrated their courage to resist unjust war. However, Not in Our Name now needs to rely on this public appeal to meet our own operating expenses so that we can continue this work -- which is moving full speed ahead with the Sunday, May 29 "Military Voices Against the War" event in Berkeley featuring the leading voices from across the country.
