Local Girl Returns Bringing Global Stories

Women of Conscience: Resisting While Existing
Monday Oct 23 – 6:00 pm – Rolling Hills Baptist Church, 1400 E. Rolling Hills Dr.

Ann Wright returns to Northwest Arkansas to talk about the world from a global peace activists perspective. Ann is a Rogers native with a long history of diplomatic and military service, who retired rather than follow orders against her conscience about war in Iraq. She took up full time peace activism and has since been covering the globe. For this visit she wants to talk about the situation with North Korea, and the women have asked for her thoughts on how to be a person of conscience in the sphere you’re given. It should be a thought-provoking talk!


Thursday Oct 19 – 6:00 pm – Fayetteville Library

Join Jan VanSchuyver and friends for a special advocacy workshop. Only a few seats still open.

“How can I make a difference?” It’s a question many of us are asking these days. In addition to helping locally, many are turning to advocacy – influencing Congress to make decisions that impact lives in a positive way.
This workshop will clear up some of the mystery of advocacy and empower you with takeaway tools that you can begin using immediately to influence your members of Congress for a better world.
Brought to you by RESULTS, a grassroots advocacy organization committed to end of poverty, this workshop will use global poverty issues as our centerpiece issue of the night as we learn and practice new tools, but these tools are highly adaptable to many issues you may care about.

The Bail Trap: American Ransom

Monday Oct 25 – 6:30 pm – OMNI Center
Movie and discussion led by Jon Comstock, Sponsored by OMNI and NWA’s Liberty Initiative

Money bail is one of the main feeders of America’s mass incarceration system – and yet something most Americans know very little about. Brave New Films is producing a series of short films to change that.

The money bail system is broken: Low-income Americans are sitting in jails for days, months, and even over a year simply because they can’t afford to pay bond amounts. The reality is that a great many people are in our county jails for one simple reason: being too poor. This is both morally and legally wrong. We have laws and Court Rules in Arkansas that if followed could provide immediate relief while recognizing the need for safety and honoring the presumption of innocence.

On October 1st, People Power – the ACLU’s grassroots mobilization program – will launch a new campaign focused on organizing local communities to protect and expand our fundamental right to vote.

The plan is simple: organize THOUSANDS of grassroots events in communities all across the U.S. We’ll be ready to fight back against attacks on our voting rights and put pressure on our lawmakers to expand this fundamental pillar of our free society.
