Reclaiming A Peaceful, Just, Green Future…By Taking Our Democracy Back!

Democracy Center, Mandela Room
45 Mount Auburn Street, Cambridge, MA 02138
6-7 PM – pot luck
7-9 PM  presentations by Jill Stein (Green-Rainbow Party), Maureen Barillaro

Isabel Espinal (member, Fund Our Communities Not War Network), Dave Grosser 
(Somerville 25% Committee), Mel King, Brian Koulouris (Socialist Alternative),

Solutions are within our reach – for peace, a just budget, and green jobs that 
restore the economy, provide pathways out of poverty, rescue our climate and 
build healthy communities. But they're not implemented by elected officials 
under the influence of corporate interests and big campaign donors. Imagine how 
different it would be under an enabling political system, instead of a disabling 
one. Come explore how we can make it so!

Peace, climate, and justice activists are converging to explore strategies for 
turning the tide by unleashing the power of democracy to move us forward. Hear 
about a game-changing ‘Voter Pledge for Peace, Justice & a Green Future,  the 
‘Green Ribbon Campaign’ for climate action and political traction. [[IF THEY'D 
LIKE TO PARTICIPATE, ADD  “We’ll also hear about the New Democracy/Black 
Empowerment Coalition that is reviving the fight for democracy and racial 
justice in Massachusetts.]]

From the Middle East to the Midwest, from Boston to the Berkshires, there is a 
renewed call to turn individual ideals into effective collective political power 
and action. Share your ideas, & plug in to collaborative action to take our 
future back
