SEWI is hosting the Statewide Anti-War Student Conference and Rally in Exley early next month:
Students from across the state will be converging on Wesleyan University for the first C[onnecticut] O[pposes the] W[ar] Student Conference. The purpose of the conference is to train students with the tools they need to help End the War in Iraq and Bring the Troops Home.
The conference will contain a keynote speaker, followed by workshops dealing with issues ranging from Organizing 101 (i.e. running an effective meeting, media outreach, how to recruit new members, etc) to statewide campaigns (i.e. Campus Divestment, Truth in Recruitment, the Iraq Refugee Crisis, Iraq Veterans Against the War).
After the workshops are completed there will be a rally and march to cap a wonderful day of movement building.
The conference is the beginning of a vibrant student lead antiwar movement in CT. Student groups from dozens of colleges and high schools will come together for this historic event.
Date: Saturday, Apr. 12
Time: 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
