CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS FOR THE 3RD ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE
PALESTINE SOLIDARITY MOVEMENT AT OSU ON NOVEMBER 7-9

Palestine Activists,

The Third Annual Conference of the Palestine Solidarity Movement will
be held at Ohio State University from November 7th to the 9th.  This
will be an ACTIVIST-ORIENTED conference, so we are looking for two
types of workshop proposals:

- Training or Activist Skill Shares (how activists can effectively
use the media, do public speaking, do street theater or creative
actions on campus, etc)

- Organizing Workshops: to develop national action strategies,
overcome obstacles in our movement, build coalitions and do
outreach, or enhance national campaigns (such as student divestment
on campus, the caterpillar campaign, the ISM, etc). These workshops
and skill shares should be interactive and involve audience
participation.

Please include in your proposal:

1) If it is a skill share or an organizing workshop
2) The title as you would like it to appear in the program (not
guaranteed to appear this way)
3) Who will be conducting it (which group or what individuals)
4) A brief description of your session including how it relates to
the goals of the conference and how it will be interactive.
5) At least one contact person with email and phone number

Please submit your proposals to workshops at palestineconference.com
by SEPTEMBER 30, 2003.

ALSO, please submit ideas for professional and amateur talent for our
CULTURAL EVENT on Friday Night to the same email address.  This could
include artists, musicians, dancers, poets, spoken word artists, etc,
who focus on Palestine and/or related solidarity activism.
