Larry Wittner: How to Grow Local Organizations

Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall
67 South Randolph Avenue Poughkeepsie, NY

Larry Wittner, long time peace and social justice advocate, came to Poughkeepsie, NY on Nov. 1 to give a free talk about growing local membership in grassroots, activist organizations.

Dr. Wittner earned a Ph.D. in history from Columbia University and has since played a leadership role in the United University Professions (affiliate of the AFL/CIO). He has sponsored numerous union resolutions endorsing the Campaign for a New Foreign Policy, condemning the Iraq War, and calling upon the AFL-CIO to demand the withdrawal of U.S. troops from that conflict.
