We invite you to join us in launching “Grounds for Dissent,” a Pop-Up GI Coffeehouse. (And don't miss Sat 2/22 continuation!)

Reviving the Vietnam-era movement, GI coffeehouses are organizing centers, provididng space for meetings, counseling, and producing underground media. Today's coffeehouses fill a permanent need to provide information, counseling, and a safe space for service members and their communities.

This coffeehouse will be ours to build and enjoy for just the one weekend, but we hope it will also be fertile grounds for us to grow deeper roots to invigorate and celebrate not just the Coffeehouse Movement but our common concerns, larger connections and commitments.

SCHEDULE:
4pm: Street flyering
6pm: GRAND OPENING!
FOOD, Beverage, Conviviality.
War is Trauma AND Queer Anti-militarist Poster Exhibit
7pm: Meet the Coffeehouse Touring party. They come from Under the hood in Texas, from Coffee Strong in Washington State and from the Clearing Barrel in Kaiserslautern, Germany with tales to tell.
