USSF National-Local Planning Kicks Off in Detroit!
Planning for the United States Social Forum in Detroit 2010 kicked off this week with a reception for national and local planners and funders. The reception was held at the Hannan House in Detroit, Michigan, a senior citizen-based foundation that addresses housing and other service needs
The reception was a cross-generational event with nearly 100 people from across the country and Detroit, representing diverse peoples and backgrounds.
Local organizers and national activists are meeting over the weekend to lay the groundwork for launching this tremendous grassroots effort. Much more information will be coming soon about how you can get involved, engage your community, and make plans to get to Detroit as we work toward "Another World Is Possible. Another U.S. Is Necessary"!
