I'm sending a last-minute re-invitation to the Climate Change Leadership Workshop this weekend, which I'll be attending, in case anyone else is suddenly inspired to join me. At the bottom is a second invitation, to a MN350 event/fundraiser on Saturday, October 26, at 6 pm (just following day one of the workshop) at Gandhi Mahal, 3009 27th Avenue South, Minneapolis. Marcy is sponsoring a Power Shift 2013 activist, who will then work with the CCC, and said she is likely to attend. I plan to attend as well if I feel energetic enough at the end of the workshop. The food at Gandhi Mahal is most excellent.
