Good afternoon Iraq Affinity Group supporters

The next meeting of the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group will 
be a conference call held this coming Monday, November 9 at 7 PM. Please 
RSVP if you would like the call in number and access code.

(Meetings are usually on the 2nd Monday of each month.)

I have added a little time to the political update to talk about the 
meaning of the outcome of the local and national elections on our work; 
while our goals remain the same the paths to get there may differ.

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

   The Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group is committed to educating
