WILPF Gathering 2013 to take place Weds. July 24 - Sun. July 28

I'm writing this from Wing Farm:  looking out at the lupines and poppies - and lettuce - sprouting up in the garden, and looking forward to seeing all of you in @ six weeks time.
Confirmed presenters so far are: our US WILPF staff person, Ria Kulenovic, who will just have returned from visiting her family in Bosnia and will have stories to tell us from that still beleaguered country, and Dorie Wilsnack, who has developed a workshop called Radical Roots Genealogy which is a genealogy education and training project. “Through workshops, presentations and individual consultations, family history research is approached as a gateway toward social change and community empowerment." I think she could help us think of the upcoming 100th anniversary of WILPF in new and creative ways.
Do you have a proposal, report, dance, workshop, herb walk to proposal? Please send me an e-mail to my address with 'Gathering' in the subject line.  I have received suggestions from Hattie, Beth Adams, Sandy Baird, and Max. I hope to have the schedule up soon.
