February 28: Counter-recruitment networking calls

Hello friends,

Every six to eight weeks, On Earth Peace sponsors conference calls for individuals and groups who are doing truth-in-recruitment organizing, or who want to get started.  Since April 2005, more than 70 people have participated, from coast to coast.  Can you join us this month?

The calls' purposes are 1) to learn from each other and grow in strategic reflection about our work, 2) to join together for inspiration and spiritual support, and 3) to strengthen the truth-in-recruiting movement as a whole by increasing our connections with each other.  

Our calls are especially focused on supporting those working from the basis of Christian faith, although all are warmly welcomed to participate. On Earth Peace is the peace education and action agency of the Church of the Brethren.

This month, we are offering two calls, both of which will take place on Wednesday, February 28th.  Can you join us?

(1) Weds, Feb 28, at 11:00AM-12:30PM EASTERN TIME (8:00AM-9:30AM Pacific)
(2) Weds, Feb 28, at 7:00PM-8:30PM EASTERN TIME (4:00PM-5:30PM Pacific)

The February 2007 calls will feature:
(1) Christian theological reflection on counter-recruitment,
(2) a chance to share and hear stories with other organizers around the country,
(3) highlights of recent resources and new developments in the truth-in-recruiting movement, and
(4) strategic reflection on themes and common challenges that emerge from the call, including the explanation of one strategy tool you can take back to use in your work in your local setting.

There will be eight slots available for each call.  We have found it's best to limit the number of participants in order to deepen the sharing and conversation that can take place.

Please send an e-mail to to join this month's calls!
