Events of interest

Here are "items of interest" to me, and, perhaps, to you:

A discussion on activism and momentum
December 2, 12:30 - 2:00 pm EST
Turning Voters into Activists

Experts and activists chosen as Prime Mover fellows of the Hunt Alternatives Fund will offer ideas for how citizens, grassroots activists, funders, and the media can capitalize on the momentum of voter participation in the 2008 campaign and election to reinvigorate Americans’ engagement in civic life.

The discussion will be facilitated by Ambassador Swanee Hunt, chair of Hunt Alternatives, and Jim Wallis, executive director of Sojourners and a leader of the progressive evangelical movement. They will be joined by Majora Carter, Jennifer Chrisler, Giovanna Negretti, Paul Rieckhoff, Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, and nine others.
