► October 12th, Monthly “Action Team Group Call”
with Congressman Bobby Scott [D-VA]
On October 9th, we will be hosting a newcomer orientation call to share with you more about what we are up to at The Peace Alliance and Student Peace Alliance, as well as how you can get involved in your community to help us build peace and form Peace Alliance Action Teams. The call will take place Wednesday, October 9th at 6:00 pm PT, 9:00 ET. Register for the call here.
Then, on Saturday morning, Oct. 12th, we will have our first Monthly Action Team call with our Team Leaders and Team Members. Normally, this call is only for our Action Teams, but this first month, we are inviting anyone to listen in who is a member of an action team, whose action team is forming or is interested in learning more about action teams.
Our special guest speaker this month is none other than the Honorable Congressman Bobby Scott (pictured right). Rep. Scott is the lead author and champion of the Youth PROMISE Act. His expertise on how we can build peace in our communities is unmatched in Congress.
In addition to our guest speaker, we will also be discussing our monthly action, which will be a Letter to the Editor action focusing on the announcement of the Nobel Peace Prize (announced October 11th). This call will take place Saturday, October 12th at 10:00 am PT, 1:00 ET. Register for this call here.
