Voices for Creative Nonviolence, the Chicago-based group that staged a 500-mile Witness Against War walk to the Republican convention in St. Paul, will sponsor a presence from Jan. 1-19, in President-elect Obama’s Hyde Park neighborhood in Chicago. It’s called “Camp Hope: Countdown To Change.”
It’s called Camp Hope because organizers
earnestly hope his presidency will signal the dawning of long-needed progressive change in the United States.
The 19 days of activities are designed to help build popular momentum behind the progressive goals of President Obama’s campaign — and, one suspects, to remind him of those commitments.
The Wisconsin Network for Peace and Justice, with 165 member organizations, has endorsed Camp Hope.
