Welcome to Knoxville!

mike-welcomeDear Friends,

Mike is here at the Riverside house welcoming you to a week of resistance to death-dealing and celebration of life!  As you can see by his shirt, this week’s celebration of anti-nuclear resistance also reaches out to encompass all courageous acts to affirm life in our world.  (A special shout-out to our brothers and sisters in Syracuse for their recent vibrant actions to raise an outcry against the proliferation of U.S. drone strikes!)

Those of you who can join us for all or some of the week’s events may find the schedule below helpful.  For those of you who cannot be here, you can check this page for daily updates surrounding the trial!

People are arriving in a steady stream, and the food, laughter, and inspiration is already flowing.  I hope you will join us, either in person or from afar.

Peace!
