We have two members of the US Social Forum's National Planning Committee joining us to talk about the Pacific Northwest Social Forum:
Edgar Franks is the affiliate coordinator for Move to Amend's Whatcom County chapter in Bellingham, WA. He serves as the Civic Engagement Program Coordinator at Community to Community Development, working to engage supporters and develop a strategy that ensures the needs of our community are represented.
Monica Beemer served as Executive Director of Sisters Of The Road , a non-profit Cafe and community organization working in Portland, Oregon to end poverty and homelessness at their root causes. Monica is also the co-chair, with Marian Baker Kramer, of the national Assembly to End Poverty, serves on the National Planning Committee of the US Social Forum and is on the board of the Western Regional Advocacy Project.
