Subject:   Re: [september17discuss] Please help posting OPEN FORUMS on our website - Movement for Justice in El Barrio teach-in Sunday 6pm

Hi everyone,

It's confirmed, Bill Mckibben is not speaking today.  Can the event be removed on the nycga calendar?  right now it looks like he is overlapping with movement for justice in el barrio.

Also, I'm hearing that the movement for justice is still concerned that the description on our sites, including the facebook event, is not the one that they sent in, is anyone aware of this and/or in contact with them?
