Hiya! My name is Stacy and I and a few co-organizers are putting on a show here in Portland, Oregon on May 3rd, 2003 at the Hollywood Theatre. I'll paste the information below, but I just wanted to let people know that we really need people to get involved on a performance level. We need spoken word and performance artists, musicians, speakers... I'd love to hear from anyone who is within driving distance of the show that would like to get involved. We don't have much $$, so we can't offer to fly people in at this point.
Thanks for your time, and please pass this information on if you know of others who might be interested!
