A few of the many events coming up

My mailbox fills up with announcements of fascinating events. Here are a few of them.

++ US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation
10th Annual National Organizers’ Conference in Washington, DC, September 16-19.
Online registration will close on Wednesday, September 14 at 5:00pm Eastern, after which, only on-site registration will be available. 

As part of this year’s conference, Grassroots Training Institute/Member Group Workshops session.  We received so many amazing workshop submissions that we had to add additional slots to fit all of them in the schedule! These workshops will inspire you to take action and become a more effective activist.
