I first thought this event was happening in Bellingham. I see now that this May 9th event is happening in Seattle.

However, on May 12, from 6 to 9pm, this same event IS happening in Bellingham at the Pickford Cinema! Orland Bishop will be the guest speaker, and filmmaker Emmanuel Vaughan -Lee will be available for Q&A

Thanks for posting this Doug. Right in line with what Transition Whatcom is all about. The co-sponsors all look to be regional groups (Transition Whatcom is a member of SCALLOPS). Who is the local organizer who's making this happen in Bellingham?
