Occupy Greensboro at New Garden Friends Meeting

AFSC members and other volunteers took part in an Occupy Greensboro presentation last week at New Garden Friends Meeting. The presentation, a part of New Garden Friends’ “First Day Forum,” was coordinated by Susan Ikenberry, an active member of the Greensboro community. Susan brought in Ann Lennon, our AFSC Area Coordinator, John Wright and Bobbie Sonner, Occupy Greensboro activists, and Chandlee White, another Occupy Greensboro supporter and participant.
