UNITED TO AMEND – JOIN US

Dear Volunteers plus a few Still Thinking,
We are very happy to see such enthusiasm!  Bill Earley our Racine Organizer has asked me to write to you with some exciting news.
As you know we will be gathering signatures in Racine for United to Amend, a grassroots, non-partisan volunteer based movement to combat the dominance of moneyed interests and restore our country to “We The People.”
The exciting news is that the Wisconsin State Organizer, George Penn will be with us this coming Wednesday, November 2nd, at Gateway, Room 207 in the Tech Building. George is a superb organizer, he is passionate about restoring democracy and will give an inspiring presentation from 10 to 11am.
However if you are a recent recruit we suggest that you come in at 9am for the “hands on” briefing and then stay for the presentation.  There are rules and procedures we have to follow in gathering signatures.
Other times you can come in for a clear excellent “hands-on” briefing by Bill Earley are:  Wednesday November 2nd1-2:30pm
Thursday November 3rd, 9 to 11am, 1-1:30pm
Friday November 4th, 1 to 2:30pm.
He will also be present at the Hopes Center, 521 6th St., on Thursday from 7 to 8:30, the same time as the RCPJ meeting.
         ANSWERS TO SOME OF YOUR QUESTIONS:
1.  You suggested it.  Our shifts have been changed to 3 hour shifts.
2.  Shifts will be at the busiest polling places at the busiest hours.
3.  Yes, we will have a table and a chair (or 2 chairs ) for you.
4.  Bill has met with the City Clerk who has approved our presence right outside, as close as 10 feet from the door of the polling place.
5.  Bill will be meeting with the Chief of Police so they will be aware of us.
Hoping to see you Wednesday morning!
Elaine Marie Kinch
PS:  Invite your friends to gather signatures with you, and bring them to the presentation and a briefing!  The more signatures, the better.

Sharing ‘Forgotten Wars & Flowers’

Rita Tallent Picken Regional Center for Arts and Humanities
University of Wisconsin-Parkside Art Gallery
900 Wood Road, Kenosha  WI  53144

Opening on October 26th, Forgotten Wars & Flowers features solo and collaborative projects by artist, activist, and Iraq War veteran Aaron Hughes. The exhibition brings together works from the past decade that seek to bridge cultural divides and find moments of shared humanity and beauty amidst, and despite, the ongoing “Global War on Terror.” Central to the exhibition is the Tea Project, a collaboration with Amber Ginsburg consisting of works on paper, a large scale ceramic installation, and intimate performances and dialogues hosted over cups of tea. Inspired by accounts of Guantanamo Bay detainees drawing flowers on Styrofoam cups, Hughes and Ginsburg created 779 porcelain cast Styrofoam cups, one for each individual detained at Guantanamo since 2001.

During the related performances these teacups are taken out of display and used by guests as Hughes weaves the ritual and communal aspects of preparing and serving tea with stories of detention, love, and war.

Wed. Oct. 26th, 2:00 pm: Free Artists Talk with Hughes and Ginsburg

Wed. Oct. 26th, 5:00-7:15 pm: Free opening reception. Meet the artists while enjoying light hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. 

 

Tea Project performance, Thursday Nov. 10th, 1:15 pm and 5:15 pm
