Minutes for Organizational Meeting
Wednesday, July 3, 2019, at 12:00 p.m.
Blue Hill Public Library
Connie, Peter, Bonnie, Steve, Ron, Judy


We talked about our Congressperson Jared Golden’s conversation with people in the library this morning and generally about his accessibility to constituents.


We plan to show Symphony of the Soil at 7 pm on July 26 at the library, in our usual film series. Peter will make a poster. Bonnie will write a press release. Then Steve will send the PR out to media.


We have donated a copy of The Human Element to the library DVD collection.


A friend has suggested that PPJ further pursue the climate crisis topic by hearing from Phil Osgood about his recent participation in the Washington DC Citizen Climate Lobby. Steve will contact Phil to consider whether he might present information on lobbying in D.C. for the bill.


WERU has taped an interview with five of the civil resistance participants recently arrested at Bath Iron Works as part of the Climate Crisis Demands Conversion campaign. It will be aired at 10:00 am on July 4.


Steve will write to PJEM to agree to co-sponsor the End Violence Together Rally & March to be held on September 14, 2019 from 1 – 4 PM at West Market Square in Bangor.


Our next organizational meeting is scheduled for the Bass Room, in the Blue Hill Library, at 12:00 noon on the first Wednesday of next month, August 7, 2019.
