Greetings Iraq Affinity Group supporters

The next meeting of the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group will 
be held this coming Monday, January 14 at 7 PM at our office at 2807 SE 
(Meetings are usually on the 2nd Monday of each month.)

As usual, if you're unable to attend in person we can try to plug you in by
phone, just let us know if you want to do that. Last month I was prepared 
to patch in three people (though two didn't make it for various reasons), 
which is the maximum we can do right now with our technology.

Here's the proposed agenda for Monday's meeting:

    The Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group is committed to educating
    the public about the effects of U.S. policy on the people of Iraq, and
    other areas including SW Asia, North Africa, and the "Middle East,"
    and on the domestic costs of war.
