April counter-recruitment networking calls

This is a call-out to all those active in or wanting to GET active in proactive & responsive engagement with military recruiters and the situation youth face with regards to militarism.
Spring is springing to life, and it's time for our next round of Encountering Recruitment counter-recruitment calls.

For those who haven't participated previously, one recent participant shared,
"These calls have been quite helpful in giving me ideas and resources that I had not known about before.  As we share with each other, we are giving information that can be gained & used in our own communities, finding out what they have tried & what works & doesn’t work – to have an idea what other communities have done."  
The networking call is a great place to share what's been happening in your encounters with recruiters or work with youth around issues of militarism and recruitment.    We usually have eight to twelve participants from all around the country -- California to Nebraska to Michigan to Maryland.   Each gets a chance to share and request input or counsel. 
        If you are just considering getting started, you are especially welcome!  It's a good place to get a boost towards action.

There will be two slots for April:

Evening:  Thursday, April 20, 7:30PM-9:00PM EASTERN DAYLIGHT
Daytime:  Wednesday, April 26, 11:00AM-12:30PM EASTERN DAYLIGHT

Would you please respond to me directly (send to mattguynn@earthlink.net) with your availability for either or both slots?  (I will need at least three folks in each slot to keep it open.)  If responding, please let me know if there's a specific focus you would like or question for conversation. 

Peace & respect,

~Matt Guynn
