Dear Greens,

Please join us tomorrow for our monthly meeting, this time at
the Noe Valley Library:

Time: Wed, June 22, 7-8:45 pm
Location: Noe Valley Library Meeting Room,
451 Jersey Street (near 24th/Castro).

Topic: Green Economics

What would a Green Economy in San Francisco look like?  Bring your
ideas regarding the City's budget and pensions.  While we're on the
subject of Green, we'll discuss fundraising ideas for Terry Baum's
campaign for Mayor--what can we do to raise the money needed for
ballot access?

All our meetings are open to the public and new members are most


Happy Pride!

This weekend, come help out at the Green Party booth at Pride!  Last
year, we registered over 100 new Greens.  This year, we'll register
more, as well as collect signatures to help get Terry Baum on the
ballot.  If you can help out, please email us at cc at sfgreens.org.  We
need volunteers both Saturday and Sunday, from 9 am until 6 pm.

Our booth will be on Larkin St, near Grove.

upcoming tabling opportunities and meetings, as well as party
strategy, in order to answer questions from members.
