Dear Brothers and Sisters of Veterans For Peace,
I have seen a good bit of debate about the idea of protesting at the upcoming RNC and DNC conventions…some people think it is a waste of time, some people think one convention is more worthy of protest than another. But the bottom line is that there will be a lot of protesters at both conventions, as well as a lot of media–both domestic and international. Both conventions will present great opportunities for VFP members to show our flag, seek out media, and tell our stories. I know that many of you just got back from the Miami convention and may be limited on your ability to travel again so soon, however, if you are able, I hope you will consider it.
The VFP point of contact in Tampa is Debra Kay Hedding: email@example.com and
the VFP point of contact in Charlotte is John Heuer: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are planning to participate in either or both of these events, please contact Debra and/or John so we can coordinate the VFP presence!
In peace and solidarity,
President, Veterans For Peace
