Hello PJW supporters
Sorry for two bulk emails in a day, wanted to get this out in a timely

restrictions are 100% not a concern, but for now here's info on a virtual event
happening two weeks from tomorrow.
SAVE THE DATE: Virtual memorial for Yvonne Simmons
Sunday, September 25, 2022
12:00 noon Pacific Daylight Time
To friends, colleagues, fans and family of Yvonne Simmons
There will be an online memorial for Yvonne held on Sunday, September 25 at
12:00 noon PDT via Zoom. It is planned to last until 1:30 PM but could run
longer depending how many people wish to speak for as long as three minutes in
tribute/rememberance. Technical support will be provided by Open Signal/Portland
Community Media, which will allow for music, video, photos and, for those who
choose, pre-recorded comments to be included in the event.
If you want to secure a speaking slot, please contact Dan Handelman at Peace and
Justice Works, pjw at pjw.info, by Friday, September 23 at 1 PM. There will also be
the opportunity to speak spontaneously at the event.
If you have video, audio or photos to share, please upload them to
WeTransfer.com no later than Sunday, September 18 at 11:59 PM (this is to ensure
Open Signal has the material in a timely way-- sorry for the short notice!).
The memorial will eventually be edited together to play back on cable TV and
likely on YouTube. If you do not want your segment to be used for wide
broadcasst please let us know when you sign up or when you begin speaking.
Yvonne's amazing life ended on July 2 but her lifetime of working for peace,
justice, women's rights, and helping children and animals endures.
