PENINSULA PEACE AND JUSTICE
Minutes for Organizational Meeting
Wednesday, November 13, 2019, at 12:00 p.m.
Blue Hill Public Library
Bonnie, Peter, Connie, Steve, Judy, Dud
We are talking with Hugh Curran about a presentation in Blue Hill of a talk he gave recently at a conference in Malta, reflecting work on Tolerance and Nonviolence.
Steve has tried to keep up with scheduling library rooms for us in coming months as usual.
Judy opened discussion about climate crisis action opportunities which may occur independently of PPJ. For instance, to offer queries to Maine senatorial candidates of 2020 regarding the climate emergency. Others spoke of participation in Extinction Rebellion and supporting developments of environmentally sound and sustainable policy-making in Washington. We confirmed again that PPJ does not seek to sponsor or advocate for specific candidates for electoral office.
We agree to show Watermark (2014) on 11/29/19. Peter will make a poster. Steve will send out a press release and bring a copy of the DVD.
We discuss arranging to post Peace on Earth banners in Blue Hill, as in years past. Dud will help with his pick-up truck and identify our banners in storage with IPJ. Steve and Bonnie expect to be among those hanging banners with Dud.
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, December 4, 2019.
