What: People's Campaign meeting
Where: Redstone Building #302, 2940 16th Street, San Francisco, CA
When: Sun, Feb 28, 6:30 pm - 9 pm

We have been exposed to weak, top-down government rule for decades
that has deeply disenfranchised the majority of San Franciscans.  The
People's Campaign is an effort to grow true local direct democracy
from the ground up, and many Greens have gotten involved.

Please join us for a free dinner at 6:30 p.m.  Our meeting will start
promptly at 7 p.m.  Donations will be graciously accepted to help
cover the cost of the food, but everyone is encouraged to join us for
the meal.
