Latest Activity: Aug 4, 2013
Every year, the Backbone Campaign, which is headquartered here on Vashon, has a week long workshop for activists. Most of their activities are oriented toward promoting sustainable policies at the state and national levels. There will be people from all over the country here both to teach and to learn. Anyone is welcome to participate: check the backbonecampaign.org for details of the Localize This! Action Camp.
Bill Moyer, the director of the Backbone Campaign, asked me if someone from Transition Whatcom would be willing to come down during that week to share knowledge about what you have accomplished there.
The Workshop is from July 31 to Aug 5, although Aug 5 is reserved for a planned action in Tacoma.
We at Transition Vashon also admire all the great work you are doing and it would be a service to us as well to be able to talk with you.
Let me know if someone is willing to come down. I'm sure we can find a way to cover your expenses and to feed you and put you up for the night. There will be camping facilities at the workshop if you like....
Please let me know asap, and I will put you in touch with Bill: firstname.lastname@example.org
