Green Party Meeting in Chicago: Diversity Offerings

Info and Schedule for Green Party Annual National Meeting in Chicago below.

KW: Greetings. This is a personal message and summary from Kimberly. Though, I have recently been elected as one of the Co-Chairs of the GP-US Diversity Committee, so I would appreciate anyone who could come by the Diversity Committee meeting on Thursday, July 10th at 1pm at the Chicago convention.

Below is a list of workshop, caucus and meeting dates. Please note that I left off the room numbers, partially because they are sometimes subject to change. Please see the schedule published at the meeting, and/or check the message board/ride board at the meeting.
