Join KFTC at the Vice Presidential Debate in Danville: Thursday, October 11

The new Wildnerness Trace chapter of KFTC invites you to join them at the Vice Presidential Debate Festival in Danville on Thursday, October 11, 2012.

KFTC members will be speaking on the issues we work on that are important to the national debate--either because they're being addressed or have been ignored and need to be heard.

If you come to join us for the day, please wear your KFTC t-shirt if you have one, or any bright green shirt. We want to stand out in the crowd!

Introduction to KFTC and local organizing -- Wilderness Trace Chapter members

Economic Justice: Tax and Budget Issues -- Dana Beasley Brown
