Headin' to Chicago
Well, here we go. The packets are printed, the last emails have been sent, our registration list is finalized. We're heading to Chicago for the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation's 8th Annual National Organizers' Conference. We'll be networking, strategizing, discussing proposals to advance our work, voting on new Steering Committee members, enjoying an evening with Rashid Khalidi, Omar Barghouti, and Tala Abu Rahmeh, reuniting with old friends, and more. We won't have time to blog or send updates during the conference, but keep an eye on the blog, website, Twitter, and Facebook for post-conference updates. Next week, we'll be coming back to DC, and our members will head back to their home communities--and the work of changing U.S. policy begins anew! Hope to see you in Chicago!
