[pjw] MEETING/RSVP: Iraq Affinity Group "meets" Tuesday, February 15, 7 PM

Wed Feb 9 15:53:50 EST 2022

Hello Iraq Affinity Group supporters

Due to the vagaries of the calendar, (a) our meeting this month is on the 
3rd Tuesday (we meet on the Tuesday that falls between then 9th and 15th 
of the month) AND (b) it's just two days after the Annual meeting where 
we're doing a report back to the general membership about what we're 
working on. But that's ok.

To be clear, the next meeting of the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity 
Group will be a conference call held this coming Tuesday, February 15 at 7 
PM. Please RSVP if you would like the call in number and access code. We 
also are able to host two people (in addition to me) in the office, masks 
on, windows open. If you want a "live space" let me know, first asked, 
first served.

Here's the proposed agenda for the 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
